Preferred and contingent capital securities offer investors attractive yields relative to fixed-income alternatives, subordinated exposure to well-known investment-grade issuers primarily in the financial services sector and a diversification benefit due to their low correlation to other asset types.
Distributions from dividends or interest income paid by preferred and income securities are typically paid monthly or quarterly. Like other investments, these distrubutions may be taken in cash or automatically reinvested.

There can be no assurance that any closed-end fund will achieve its investment objective(s). Past performance does not guarantee future results. The value of any closed-end fund will fluctuate with the value of the underlying securities. Until the original listing of a closed-end fund on an exchange, no closed- end fund’s shares will have a history of public trading and, historically closed-end funds often trade at a discount to their net asset value.
Investors should consider the investment objective and policies, risk considerations, charges and ongoing expenses of an investment carefully before investing.
