Important information on risk

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Closed-end fund shares are subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest, and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. 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, or the net asset value, even after considering the reinvestment of fund distributions. Certain products and services may not be available to all entities or persons. There is no guarantee that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
