Portfolio Overview

Investment Overview

The Fund employs a multi-asset strategy that seeks to generate high current income by dynamically allocating assets to the following three segments of a company's capital structure:

-- Convertible securities, which offer current income, downside protection, and potential capital appreciation.

-- High yield securities, which offer high income potential and have a potentially favorable risk/reward profile, relative to other fixed income asset classes.

-- Senior secured loans which offer a diversified return due to their unique floating-rate feature, seniority in the capital structure, and historically low correlation to core fixed income.

The Fund seeks to return the original net asset value (NAV) (defined as NAV per share before the deduction of the estimated offering cost of $0.02 per share) or more at the end of a seven-year investment term ending in 2024.

Interest rate risk management -- the Fund's underlying asset classes have historically performed well in past rising rate environments and have exhibited low historical correlation to core fixed income.

Effective February 1, 2021, this fund's name and investment adviser have changed.

Performance & Risk

Performance

As of
As of

Performance data quoted represents past results. Past performance is no guarantee of future results and current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Performance reflects the deduction of fund operating expenses. Performance does not reflect the incurrence of brokerage expenses, which typically apply to exchange traded products. Total return net of brokerage expenses would be lower than the total returns on market value shown in the table.

Credit ratings issued by Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations assess the credit worthiness of the issuers of the underlying securities and not to the Fund or its shares. Ratings are measured using a scale that ranges from AAA (highest) to NR (not rated). Not rated securities do not necessarily indicate low quality. The security's credit rating does not eliminate risk and credit ratings are subject to change. Credit Quality reflects the higher of the ratings of Standard & Poor's Corporation and Moody's Investors Service, Inc. Only one rating will be utilized if only one is available. Ratings are then adjusted to the Standard & Poor's rating tiers shown. Ratings are subject to change.

Automatic Reinvestment Plan

This plan offers shareholders a convenient way to acquire additional shares of the fund. Registered holders will be automatically placed in the Plan. If shares are held at a brokerage firm, contact your broker about participation.

Net Asset Value vs. Market Price

Net Asset Value (NAV) represents the total value of all assets held by the Fund (minus its total liabilities), divided by the total number of common shares outstanding. The net asset value returns reflect the performance of the manager. Market price is the price at which investors may purchase or sell shares of the Fund. Market price is determined in the open market by buyers and sellers, based on supply and demand. The Fund’s Market Price fluctuates throughout the day and may differ from its underlying NAV. Shares of the Fund may trade at a premium (higher than) or a discount (lower than) to NAV. This characteristic is a risk separate and distinct from the risk that the Fund’s net asset value could decline. The Fund has no control over the market price. The difference between the market price and the NAV (Premium/Discount) is expressed as a percentage of NAV.

Disclosures

Risk Considerations

Convertible Securities: A convertible security may be called for redemption at a time and price unfavorable to the portfolio.
Credit & Interest: Debt instruments are subject to various risks, including credit and interest rate risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to make interest and/or principal payments. Values of debt instruments may rise or fall in response to changes in interest rates, and this risk may be enhanced with longer-term maturities.
High Yield Fixed Income Securities: There is a greater risk of issuer default, less liquidity, and increased price volatility related to high yield securities than investment grade securities.
Bank Loans: Loans may be unsecured or not fully collateralized, may be subject to restrictions on resale and/or trade infrequently on the secondary market. Loans are subject to credit and call risk, may be difficult to value, and have longer settlement times than other investments, which can make loans relatively illiquid at times.
Leverage: When a portfolio is leveraged, the value of its securities may be more volatile and all other risks may be compounded.
Market Volatility: Local, regional, or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the portfolio and its investments, including hampering the ability of the portfolio manager(s) to invest the portfolio's assets as intended.
Closed-End Funds: Closed-end funds may trade at a discount or premium from their net asset values, which may affect whether an investor will realize gains or losses. They may also employ leverage, which may increase volatility.
