The Fund will invest in loans and other types of fixed income instruments and securities. These investments may be guaranteed, partially guaranteed or unsecured and may not be rated, and whether rated or not, may have speculative characteristics. The market price of the Fund’s investments will change in response to changes in interest rates and other factors. Usually, when interest rates rise, the values ​​of fixed income instruments fall, and vice versa.

The use of leverage creates an opportunity for increased income and returns for common shareholders but, at the same time, creates risks, including the likelihood of greater volatility in net asset value and market price and distributions on common shares. In particular, leverage can amplify interest rate risk, which is the risk that the prices of the securities in the portfolio will fall (or rise) if the market interest rates for these types of securities rise (or decrease). Therefore, leverage may result in larger changes in the net asset value of the Fund, which will be fully borne by the holders of common shares of the Fund.

Derivative investments involve risks, including the imperfect correlation between the value of these instruments and the underlying assets of the Fund. The risk of loss from a short sale is unlimited because the Fund must buy the security short at a higher price to complete the trade and there is no upper limit for the price of the security. The use of options, swaps and derivatives by the Fund has the potential to significantly increase the volatility of the Fund. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve a risk of loss of capital resulting from adverse fluctuations in currency values, differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or social, economic or political instability in d ‘other countries. The Fund’s investments in securities or other instruments of non-US issuers or borrowers may trade in undeveloped, inefficient and less liquid markets and may experience greater price volatility and changes in value.
