An investment in this fund presents a number of risks and is not suitable for all investors. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. Certain of these risks and considerations may include:
An investment in common shares is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest. Your investment in common shares represents an indirect investment in the corporate securities owned by the Fund, which generally trade in the over-the-counter markets. 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.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.Each Fund’s use of leverage creates the possibility of higher volatility for the Fund’s per share NAV, market price, distributions and returns. There is no assurance that a Fund’s leveraging strategy will be successful.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.This is the risk that a security in a Fund's portfolio will fail to make dividend or interest payments when due.The Funds may invest in inverse floaters. Due to their leveraged nature, these investments can greatly increase a Fund’s exposure to interest rate risk and credit risk. In addition, investments in inverse floaters involve the risk that the Fund could lose more than its original principal investment. Issuers may exercise their option to prepay principal
earlier than scheduled, forcing the Fund to reinvest in lower-yielding securities. Fixed-income securities such as bonds, preferred, convertible and other debt securities will decline in value if market interest rates rise. If market interest rates decline, income earned from the Fund’s portfolio may be reinvested at rates below that of the original bond that generated the income.
