This material is not intended to be relied upon as investment advice or recommendations, does not constitute a solicitation to buy or sell securities and should not be considered specific legal, investment or tax advice. This site does not list all the risks associated with each fund. Investors should contact a fund’s sponsor for fund-specific risk information and/or contact a financial advisor before investing.

NOTES: Distribution type sourced from CEFdata.com. For specific information about a fund's distribution sources, visit the fund sponsor's website.

The following information applies to closed-end funds and business development companies in general: Fund shares are not guaranteed or endorsed by any bank or other insured depository institution, and are not federally insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Shares of closed-end funds (CEFs) and business development companies (BDCs) are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of principal invested. There can be no assurance that fund objectives will be achieved. Closed-end funds and business development companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value. NAV returns are net of fund expenses, and assume reinvestment of distributions.
