Fund Risks. More detailed information regarding these risks can be found in the Fund’s prospectus. Borrowing Risk: borrowings increase fund expenses and are subject to repayment, possibly at inopportune times. Closed-End Fund Risk: closed-end funds are exchange traded, may trade at a discount to their net asset values and may deploy leverage. Derivatives Risk: derivatives are subject to counterparty risk. Equity Risk: equity securities may experience volatility and the value of equity securities may move in opposite directions from each other and from other equity markets generally. Convertible Security Risk: the market value of convertible securities adjusts with interest rates and the value of the underlying stock. Exchange Traded Note Risk: exchange traded notes represent unsecured debt of the issuer and may be influenced by interest rates, credit ratings of the issuer or changes in value of the reference index. Fixed Income Risk: the market value of fixed income securities adjusts with interest rates and the securities are subject to issuer default. Foreign/Emerging Market Risk: foreign securities may be subject to inefficient or volatile markets, different regulatory regimes or different tax policies. These risks may be enhanced in emerging markets. Investment Style Risk: investment strategies may come in and out of favor with investors and may underperform or outperform at times. Management Risk: there is no guarantee that the adviser’s investment decisions will produce the desired results. Large Shareholder Purchase and Redemption Risk: The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Market Risk: economic conditions, interest rates and political events may affect the securities markets. Preferred Stock Risk: preferred stocks generally pay dividends, but may be less liquid than common stocks, have less priority than debt instruments and may be subject to redemption by the issuer. REIT Risk: the value of REITs changes with the value of the underlying properties and changes in interest rates and are subject to additional fees. Security Risk: The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of individual securities in the Fund’s portfolio. Short Sale Risk: short positions are speculative, are subject to transaction costs and are riskier than long positions in securities. Small-Cap Risk: small-cap companies are more susceptible to failure, are often thinly traded and have more volatile stock prices. Structured Notes Risk: because of the imbedded derivative feature, structured notes are subject to more risk than investing in a simple note or bond. Swap Risk: swap agreements are subject to counterparty default risk and may not perform as intended. Tax Risk: new federal or state governmental action could adversely affect the tax-exempt status of securities held by the Fund, resulting in higher tax liability for shareholders and potentially hurting Fund performance as well. Underlying Fund Risk: underlying funds have additional fees, may utilize leverage, may not correlate to an intended index and may trade at a discount to their net asset value.
