The net asset value of the Corporation’s shares may not always correspond to their market price. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value. The Corporation‘s performance will reflect, in part, the investment decisions of its portfolio managers. Securities selected using the Corporation’s quantitative methods may perform differently from the market as a whole and there can be no assurance the Corporation’s quantitative methodology will enable it to achieve its objective. The Corporation’s share price may be adversely affected if the market value of its portfolio securities falls, fails to rise, or fluctuates due to factors affecting a single issuer, sector of the economy, industry or the market as a whole.

The Corporation‘s investment in foreign securities introduces risks not associated with investments in U.S. companies, including country risk, currency risk and custody risk which may result from political, regulatory, economic, social, and other conditions or events in a particular country, currency fluctuations and less developed custody and settlement practices. These risks may be more significant in emerging markets countries.

The Corporation's use of leverage may magnify losses and increase volatility of returns. The Corporation's use of derivatives may expose it to greater risks than are associated with investing directly in the investments underlying the derivatives. The Corporation’s investments in fixed income securities expose it to credit risk, interest rate risk, and prepayment and extension risk. These risks may be more pronounced for longer-term securities and high-yield securities (“junk bonds”).

The Corporation may invest in convertible securities, including convertible common and preferred stocks and convertible bonds. Convertible securities are subject both to the risks of their security type prior to conversion as well as their security type after conversion. The Corporation may be forced to convert a convertible security at an inopportune time, which may decrease the Corporations’ return.

There is no guarantee that the Corporation’s investment objective will be met, and you could lose money.
