Key differences between closed-end funds, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Distribution rates represent the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the most recent market price and NAV. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation. Historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains and return of capital.

The characteristics shown are not all inclusive and represent general attributes of typical investments of the types indicated.

A word on risk

There are risks inherent in any investment including, but not limited to, interest rate risk, credit risk, market risk and the possible loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds are different types of investment vehicles with different expense structures and different inflows/outflows and distribution requirements.

Closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount from net asset value. When sold, shares may be worth more or less than the purchase price or the net asset value. It is important to consider the objectives, risks, charges and expenses of any fund before investing. For this and other information that should be read carefully, please view prospectus or other current fund information provided by the fund’s sponsor.

A closed end 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.

When evaluating investment choices, investors should be aware that closed-end fund distribution sources have historically included net investment income, realized gains, and return of capital.
