The fund seeks a high level of total return by investing primarily in a diversified global portfolio of value equity securities, as well as corporate and governmental debt securities.
The fund invests in equity securities of U.S. and non-U.S. companies in all capitalization ranges, including common stocks, preferred stocks, convertibles, warrants, rights, depositary receipts, and REITs. The fund also invests in U.S. and non-U.S. corporate loans, governmental bonds, and other debt instruments. A substantial portion of the fund's debt securities may be unrated or rated below investment grade. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests its managed assets predominately in equities and a smaller portion in debt instruments; this mix is actively managed. The fund may opportunistically sell call options and to a small degree it may short equity securities.
- Opportunity for a high level of total return to fuel attractive regular managed distributions.
- Value-oriented investment strategy from experienced Tradewinds portfolio team, that opportunistically seeks to identify undervalued securities across the globe.
- Global investing is a long-term strategic opportunity for US investors to achieve additional total return potential for their portfolios by expanding their ‘opportunity set’ and investing in higher performing markets.

The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. Investors should carefully review and consider the risks listed below before investing.
The possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest.Shares of closed-end investment companies like the Fund frequently trade at a discount to their NAV. Your common shares at any point in time may be worth less than your original investment, even after taking into account the reinvestment of Fund dividends and distributions.The Fund’s investment program and the tax treatment of Fund distributions may be affected by IRS interpretations of the Internal Revenue Code and future changes in tax laws and regulations, including changes resulting from the “sunset” provisions that may apply to the favorable tax treatment of tax-advantaged dividends. There can be no assurance as to the percentage of a Fund’s distributions that will qualify as tax-advantaged dividends.Common stock returns often have experienced significant
volatility. This is the risk that a security in a Fund's portfolio will fail to make dividend or interest payments when due.The value of call options sold (written) by the Fund will fluctuate. The
Fund may not participate in any appreciation of its equity portfolio as fully as it would if
the Fund did not sell call options. In addition, the Fund will continue to bear the risk of
declines in the value of the equity portfolio.Derivative securities, such as calls, puts, warrants, swaps and
forwards, carry risks different from, and possibly greater than, the risks associated with
the underlying investments.Fixed-income securities such as bonds, preferred, convertible and other debt securities will decline in value if market interest rates rise. Value stocks are securities that the portfolio manager believes to be
undervalued, or mispriced. If the manager’s assessment of a company’s prospects is
wrong, the price of the company’s common stock or other equity securities may fall, or
may not approach the value that the manager has placed on them.
Convertible securities generally offer lower interest or dividend yields than non-convertible fixed-income securities of similar credit quality.To the extent that a Fund’s derivative investments are purchased or
sold in over-the-counter transactions, the Fund will be exposed to the risk that counterparties to these transactions will be unable to meet their obligations.Changes in exchange rates will affect the value of a Fund’s investments.Warrants and rights are subject to the same market risks as
common stocks, but are more volatile in price.Investments in non-U.S securities involve special risks not typically associated with domestic investments including currency risk and adverse political,
social and economic development. These risks often are magnified in emerging markets.
This fund has adopted a Managed Distribution Policy, designed to provide attractive, regular distributions throughout the course of the year. Under this policy, the fund seeks to maintain a stable regular distribution amount that, over the long term, matches the fund’s total distributions paid, to its total return. You should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate. Regular distributions are expected to be comprised of net income from portfolio investments, as well as net realized capital gains from the portfolio and, if necessary, a return of capital (representing, in some cases, net unrealized capital gains).
If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time. These estimates may not match the final tax characterization (for the full year’s distributions) contained in shareholders’ 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year.
