HNW – Termination of Level Distribution Policy

At a regular meeting held on November 29, 2011, the Board of Trustees of HNW determined to discontinue the fund’s level distribution policy. This determination was made in consideration of a number of factors, including the current economic environment and the fund’s current income prospects. The fund’s regular distribution for December 2011 is expected to consist entirely of net investment income. The fund’s distribution policies continue to be subject to regular review by the Board of Trustees.
