Fund Risks

Borrowing Risk – borrowings increase fund expenses and are subject to repayment, possibly at inopportune times.

Closed-End Fund Risk – closed-end funds are exchange traded, may trade at a discount to their net asset values and may deploy leverage.

Convertible Security Risk – the market value of convertible securities adjusts with interest rates and the value of the underlying stock.

Credit Derivatives Risk – the use of credit derivatives is high specialized, involves default, counterparty and liquidity risks and may not perfectly correlate to the underlying asset or liability being hedged.

Currency Risk – foreign currencies will rise or decline relative to the U.S. dollar.

Distressed and Defaulted Securities Risk – defaulted securities carry the risk of uncertainty of repayment.

Equity Risk – equity securities may experience volatility and the value of equity securities may move in opposite directions from each other and from other equity markets generally.

Fixed Income Risk – the market value of fixed income securities adjusts with interest rates and the securities are subject to issuer default.

Foreign/Emerging Market Risk – foreign securities may be subject to inefficient or volatile markets, different regulatory regimes or different tax policies. These risks may be enhanced in emerging markets.

Floating Interest Rate Risk – loans pay interest based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and a decline in LIBOR could negatively impact the Fund's return.

Investment Style Risk – investment strategies may come in and out of favor with investors and may underperform or outperform at times.

Large Shareholder Purchase and Redemption Risk – The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund.

Loans Risk – loans may be unrated or rated below investment grade and the pledged collateral may lose value. Secondary trading in loans is not fully-developed and may result in illiquidity.

Management Risk – there is no guarantee that the adviser's or sub-adviser's investment decisions will produce the desired results.

Market Risk – economic conditions, interest rates and political events may affect the securities markets.

Portfolio Turnover Risk – increased portfolio turnover results in higher brokerage expenses and may impact the tax status of distributions.

Preferred Stock Risk – preferred stocks generally pay dividends, but may be less liquid than common stocks, have less priority than debt instruments and may be subject to redemption by the issuer.

Security Risk – the value of the Fund may increase or decrease in response to the prospects of the issuers of securities and loans held in the Fund.

Swap Risk – swap agreements are subject to counterparty default risk and may not perform as intended.

Underlying Fund Risk – underlying funds have additional fees, may utilize leverage, may not correlate to an intended index and may trade at a discount to their net asset values.

Valuation Risk – Loans and fixed-income securities are traded "over the counter" and because there is no centralized information regarding trading, the valuation of loans and fixed-income securities may vary.


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.

High yield bonds are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value generally declines.

Estimated 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 by third-party data and is subject to change.

Yield is the income return on an investment. This refers to the interest or dividends received from a security and is usually expressed annually as a percentage based on the investment's cost, its current market value or its face value.
