Closed-end funds have a one-time initial public offering. Thus, once their shares are first issued, shares are not continually offered by the closed-end fund, but trade in the open market through a stock exchange. Also, like other common stocks, share prices of closed-end funds will fluctuate with market conditions and, at the time of sale, may be worth more or less than your original investment. Shares of closed-end exchange-traded funds may trade at a discount or premium to their original offering price, and often trade at a discount to their net asset value (a price that reflects the value of the fund’s underlying portfolio plus other assets, less the fund’s liabilities divided by the number of shares outstanding). Investment return, price and net asset value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions.


Please note that an investment in a money market fund is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund.

Risk Factors

Principal Investment Risks: An investment is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or any other government agency. Investments principal risk factors are listed below. Investments will go up and down in price, meaning that you could lose money by investing. Many factors influence an investment performance. An investment is not intended to constitute a complete investment program and should not be viewed as such. Before investing, be sure to read the additional descriptions of these risks. As an overall matter, instability in the financial markets has led many governments, including the United States government, to take a number of unprecedented actions designed to support certain financial institutions and segments of the financial markets that have experienced extreme volatility and, in some cases, a lack of liquidity. Federal, state and other governments, and their regulatory agencies or self-regulatory organizations, may take actions that affect the regulation of the invested instruments, or the issuers of such instruments, in ways that are unforeseeable. Legislation or regulation may also change the way in which the investment itself is regulated. Such legislation or regulation could limit or preclude the investment ability to achieve its objective.


Risks of Investment Activities Generally: All securities investing and trading activities risk the loss of capital. No assurance can be given that the investment activities will be successful or that the investments will not suffer losses.


Currency Risk: The risk that changes in currency exchange rates will negatively affect securities denominated in, and/or receiving revenues in, foreign currencies. The liquidity and trading value of foreign currencies could be affected by global economic factors, such as inflation, interest rate levels, and trade balances among countries, as well as the actions of sovereign governments. Adverse changes in currency exchange rates (relative to the U.S. dollar) may erode or reverse any potential gains from the investments in securities denominated in a foreign currency or may widen existing losses. Net currency positions may expose it to risks independent of its securities positions.


Derivatives Risk: The use of derivative instruments exposes the investments to additional risks and transaction costs. These instruments come in many varieties and have a wide range of potential risks and rewards, and may include futures contracts, options on futures contracts, options (both written and purchased), swaps, swaptions, and forward currency exchange contracts. A risk of the investments use of derivatives is that the fluctuations in their values may not correlate perfectly with the overall securities markets.


Emerging Market Risk: Emerging markets are riskier than more developed markets because they tend to develop unevenly and may never fully develop. Investments in emerging markets may be considered speculative. Emerging markets are more likely to experience hyperinflation and currency devaluations, which adversely affect returns to U.S. investors. In addition, many emerging securities markets have far lower trading volumes and less liquidity than developed markets.


Equity Securities Risk: Equity securities may be subject to general movements in the stock market, and a significant drop in the stock market may depress the price of securities to which the investment has exposure. Investment may have exposure to or invest in equity securities of companies with small or medium capitalization.  Investments in securities of companies with small or medium capitalization involve certain risks that may differ from, or be greater than, those for larger companies, such as higher volatility, lower trading volume, lack of liquidity, fewer business lines and lack of public information.
