Potential benefits
  • Provide high current income from a portfolio of shorter maturity, high-yield corporate bonds
  • Return the Original $9.85 NAV per common share on or about November 1, 2021

Fund description

The Fund seeks to provide a high level of current income and return the original $9.85 net asset value per common share on or about 1 Nov 2021.*

The Fund invests in a portfolio of primarily corporate debt securities. The Fund may invest in other types of securities including senior loans, convertible securities and other types of debt instruments and derivatives that provide comparable economic exposure to the corporate debt market. At least 80% of its managed assets will be in corporate debt securities. No more than 15% will be in securities rated CCC+/Caa1 or lower at the time of investment. Up to 30% may be in securities of non-U.S. issuers, including up to 20% in emerging market issuers, and up to 10% may be in non-U.S. dollar denominated securities.

The Fund seeks to identify securities across diverse sectors and industries that the managers believe are undervalued or mispriced. In seeking to return the original NAV on or about 1 Nov 2021, the Fund intends to utilize various portfolio and cash flow management techniques, including setting aside a portion of its net investment income, possibly retaining gains and limiting the longest maturity of any holding to no later than 1 May 2022. The Fund uses leverage.

*Recent market conditions have materially increased the risk associated with achieving the Fund’s objective to return Original NAV. This objective is not a guarantee and is dependent on a number of factors including the extent of market recovery and the cumulative level of income retained in relation to cumulative portfolio gains net of losses. For additional information, please refer to the latest Q&A.

For term definitions and index descriptions, please access the glossary in the footer.

Fund basics

Capital structure

Leverage

*The ratio of total assets of the Fund, less all liabilities that are not outstanding borrowings or outstanding preferreds, at par, to the sum of the Fund’s outstanding borrowings and outstanding preferreds, at par.

**The annualized ratio of the sum of leverage costs to the average leverage amount for a given time period.

Common shares

Annual expense ratios

Fund fees and expenses are presented as a percentage of both common shareholder capital and total fund investment capital. The first column portrays the costs directly and indirectly borne by common shareholders. The second column portrays the costs borne by the Fund on its total investment capital, which includes common assets as well as assets attributable to the Fund's issuance of senior securities (e.g. preferred shares and debt). This column enables a common shareholder to better understand how fund expenses impact portfolio investment returns. Interest expenses from leverage represent costs associated with the Fund's financing activities, which are distinct from the costs associated with the Fund's underlying core operations. Certain leveraging instruments including repurchase agreements (repos) are sometimes more efficient forms of leverage, but when used, the costs are difficult to accurately disaggregate and are not shown here.

Expense ratios are calculated using the prior 12 months of expense data as of the previous month-end. Annualized leverage financing expense is included if the Fund was leveraged as of the previous month end.

Hypothetical growth of 10K

The table illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the date indicated. Original Investment & Cumulative Distributions is the original investment value added to the cash flow received from distributions. The total returns are not adjusted to reflect the effects of taxation and assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

Calendar year returns

Average annual total returns

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the data shown. NAV returns are net of fund expenses, and assume reinvestment of distributions.

Distributions

Key information regarding distributions

Total distributions per share

Income Only Distribution: Distributions are sourced entirely from net investment income, unless noted otherwise.

Distribution Rates represent the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the market price and NAV. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation.

Top 10 issuers

Top sector allocation

Sector allocation tables include exposures achieved through credit default swaps. Such exposures are reflected based on the notional value (rather than the market value) of the swaps, with exposures weighted negatively when the Fund has purchased credit protection and positively when the Fund has sold credit protection. Other reflects an offset to (i.e. the inverse of) such notional amounts, and any sectors not specifically identified. Negative sector weightings may result from the use of derivatives and from unsettled trade positions. Positions are subject to change.

Call exposure

For the percentage of the portfolio in debt, preferred and other hybrid securities, including CoCos (if any). Percentages reflect the percentage of the Fund's investment exposure callable in the timeframe relative to the “as of” date shown. The "Next 12 months" figure (if shown) includes investments that are currently callable, as well as callable in the next 12 months. Securities subject to call may not be called.

Top 5 industries

Top countries

Based on bond holdings and reflects country of risk of the issuer. Holdings may vary and are subject to change.

Credit quality

Ratings shown are given by one of the following national rating agencies: S&P, Moody's or Fitch. Credit ratings are subject to change. If there are multiple ratings for a security, the lowest rating is used unless ratings are provided by all three agencies, in which case the middle rating is used. AAA, AA, A, and BBB are investment grade ratings; BB, B, CCC/CC/C and D are below-investment grade ratings. U.S. government and agency mortgage-backed securities, if owned by the Fund, are included in the U.S. Treasury/Agency category (included only if applicable). Holdings designated NR are not rated by these national rating agencies and, where applicable, include net derivative positions.

Maturity breakdown

All characteristics as a percentage of the fund's total net assets. Holdings and ratings are subject to change. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.

A word on risk

Investment, Market, and Price Risk: Closed-end fund shares are subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest. Common shares frequently trade at a discount to their NAV. At any point in time, your common shares may be worth less than you paid, even after considering the reinvestment of fund distributions.

Credit Risk: Debt or preferred securities held by the fund may fail to make dividend or interest payments when due. Investments in securities below investment grade credit quality are predominantly speculative and subject to greater volatility and risk of default. Unrated securities are evaluated by fund managers using industry data and their own analysis processes that may be similar to that of a nationally recognized rating agency; however, such internal ratings are not equivalent to a national agency credit rating. Counterparty credit risk may arise if counterparties fail to meet their obligations, should the fund hold any derivative instruments for either investment exposure or hedging purposes.

Low-Quality Bond Risk: The fund concentrates a large portion of its investments in low-quality bonds (sometimes called “junk bonds”), which have greater credit risk and generally are less liquid and have more volatile prices than higher quality securities.

Leverage Risk: The fund’s use of leverage may cause higher volatility for the fund’s per share NAV, market price, and distributions. Leverage typically magnifies the total return of the fund’s portfolio, whether that return is positive or negative. Leverage is intended to increase common share net income, but there is no assurance that the fund’s leveraging strategy will be successful. Different forms of leverage, including swaps, may introduce additional credit or interest rate risk. Leverage may also increase a fund’s liquidity risk, as the fund may need to sell securities at inopportune times to stay within fund or regulatory limits.

Foreign Investment Risk: Investments in non-U.S. securities involve special risks not typically associated with domestic investments including currency risk, if not hedged - the risk that changes in exchange rates will affect the value of the fund’s investments, as well as adverse political, social and economic developments. These risks often are magnified in emerging markets.

Limited Term Risk: It is anticipated that the fund will terminate and liquidate its assets and return the proceeds to its shareholders on or before a specific date, although it could terminate sooner or later under certain conditions. The fund may be required to sell portfolio securities at times when market conditions are not favorable, negatively affecting its value.

Call Risk or Prepayment Risk: Issuers may exercise their option to prepay principal earlier than scheduled, forcing the fund to reinvest in lower-yielding securities.

Interest Rate Risk: Fixed-income securities such as bonds, preferred, convertible and other debt securities will decline in value if market interest rates rise.

Illiquid Securities Risk: The fund may not be able to sell securities in its portfolio at the time or price the fund desires.

Hedging Risk: The fund may use derivative instruments for hedging purposes, but there is no assurance that the fund’s hedging strategy will be successful. Derivatives may involve a high degree of financial risk, including the risk that the loss on a derivative may be greater than the principal amount invested.

Currency Risk: Changes in exchange rates will affect the value of the fund’s investments.

Tax Risk: The tax treatment of fund distributions may be affected by future changes in tax laws and regulations or their interpretation by the Internal Revenue Service or state tax authorities.

Shares of closed-end funds are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of principal invested. Closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value (NAV).

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.
