Investment Objective & Philosophy

RiverNorth Opportunities Fund, Inc. (the "Fund") seeks total return consisting of capital appreciation and current income.

While RiverNorth Capital Management, LLC ("RiverNorth") believes markets are generally efficient, closed-end funds offer a unique structure whereby investors can purchase a diversified fund and potentially generate additional return through the change in the relationship between the closed-end fund's market price and Net Asset Value (NAV)1.

Investment Strategy

The Fund employs a tactical asset allocation strategy primarily comprised of closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds, special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), and business development companies (BDCs). RiverNorth implements an opportunistic investment strategy designed to capitalize on the inefficiencies in the closed-end fund space while simultaneously providing diversified exposure to several asset classes.

Investment Rationale

RiverNorth Opportunities Fund, Inc.is a closed-end fund designed to opportunistically invest in closed-end funds (CEFs), exchange-traded funds (ETFs), special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), and business development companies (BDCs) which seeks to provide:

* A measure of performance on a risk-adjusted basis.

Disclosures & Definitions

Risk is inherent in all investing. Investing in any investment company security involves risk, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or even that you may lose part or all of your investment. Therefore, before investing in the Common Shares, you should consider the risks as well as the other information in the prospectus.

More detailed information regarding these risks can be found in the Fund's prospectus.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.

An investment in the Fund is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle.

Investors should consider the Fund's investment objective, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The Annual Report and/or Semi Annual Report should be read carefully before investing. For more information, please read the Annual Report and/or Semi Annual Report, call your financial professional or call 844.569.4750.

The fund is a closed-end fund and closed-end funds do not continuously issue shares for sale as open-end mutual funds do. Since the initial public offering, the Fund now trades in the secondary market. Investors wishing to buy or sell shares need to place orders through an intermediary or broker. The share price of a closed-end fund is based on the market's value.

1 The price at which a closed-end fund trades often varies from its NAV. Some funds have market prices below their net asset values - referred to as a discount. Conversely, some funds have market prices above their net asset values - referred to as a premium.

2 Leverage is a speculative technique that exposes a closed-end fund to greater risk and increased costs than if it were not used. The use of leverage may cause greater volatility in the level of a closed-end fund's NAV, market price and distributions on its common shares. Leverage will also result in higher fees to the closed-end fund manager because the amount of assets under management will be included in the Fund's managed assets. There can be no assurance that a closed-end fund will use leverage or that its leveraging strategy will be successful during any period in which it is employed.

3 The S&P 500 Index is a capitalization-weighted index of 500 stocks. The index is designed to measure performance of the broad domestic economy based on the changing aggregate market value of these 500 stocks.

4 Estimated Duration: Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a fixed income investment to a change in interest rates. Duration is expressed as a number of years. Duration is estimated by the adviser based on certain assumptions from third-party data and is subject to change.
