Principal Risks

The Fund invests primarily in below investment-grade, floating rate senior loans that carry a higher than normal risk that borrowers may default in the timely payment of principal and interest on their loans, which would likely cause the value of the Fund's Common Shares to decrease. Changes in short-term market interest rates will directly affect the yield on the Fund's Common Shares. If such rates fall, the Fund's yield will also fall. If interest rate spreads on Fund's loans decline in general, the yield on the Fund's loans will fall and the value of the Fund's loans may decrease. When short-term market interest rates rise, because of the lag between changes in such short-term rates and the resetting of the floating rates on loans in the Fund's portfolio, the impact of rising rates will be delayed to the extent of such lag. Because of the limited secondary market for floating rate senior bank loans, the Fund's ability to sell its loans in a timely fashion and/or at a favorable price may be limited. An increase in the demand for loans may adversely affect the rate of interest payable on new loans acquired by the Fund, and it may also increase the price of loans purchased by the Fund in the secondary market. A decrease in the demand for loans may adversely affect the price of loans in the Fund's portfolio, which would cause the Fund's NAV to decrease. The Fund's use of leverage through borrowings can adversely affect the yield on the Fund's Common Shares. Due to Limited Liquidity for Investors the Fund does not repurchase its shares on a daily basis and no market for the Fund's Common Shares is expected to exist. If more than 5% of Common Shares are tendered in any month, investors may not be able to completely liquidate their holdings in that month. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in loans to borrowers in countries outside of the U.S. and Canada. Investment in foreign borrowers involves special risks, including potentially less rigorous accounting requirements, differing legal systems and potential political, social and economic adversity. The Fund may invest up to 15% of its assets in loans that are denominated in certain foreign currencies; however, the Fund will engage in currency exchange transactions to seek to hedge, as closely as practicable, 100% of the economic impact to the Fund arising from foreign currency fluctuations. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Borrowings; Preferred Shares; Diversification Risks; and Concentration Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.
