NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (the “Trust”) (NYSE: NHF) today announced that, effective immediately, the Trust has eliminated its non-fundamental policy to invest no more than 20% of its total assets in Non-U.S. Securities (as defined in the prospectus and/or any subsequent annual reports to shareholders) (the “20% Policy”), such that the Trust no longer has a limit on the percentage of its total assets that it may invest in such securities.
To the extent that the Trust increases its investments in Non-U.S. Securities, which may include securities issued by companies located in or otherwise exposed to the risks of emerging markets, the Trust (and any investment in the Trust) will correspondingly be subject to increased non-U.S. securities risks, emerging markets risks and/or foreign currency risk, as described more fully in the prospectus and/or any subsequent annual reports to shareholders.
