Strategy And Objective

The primary investment objective of Cohen & Steers Low Duration Preferred and Income Fund, Inc. (the Fund) is to seek to provide shareholders with high current income, and the secondary objective is to provide capital preservation. The Fund pursues its objectives primarily by investing in issues of preferred and other income securities believed to be undervalued relative to credit quality and other investment characteristics. In making this determination, the Advisor evaluates the fundamental characteristics of an issuer, including an issuers creditworthiness, and also takes into account prevailing market factors. In analyzing credit quality, the Advisor considers not only fundamental analysis, but also an issuers corporate and capital structure and the placement of the preferred or other income securities within that structure. In evaluating relative value, the Advisor also takes into account call,conversion and other structural security features, in addition to such factors as the likely directions of credit ratings and relative value versus other income security classes. The Advisor also incorporates relevant environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. In assessing duration, the Advisor considers potential changes to interest rates, and a securitys yield, coupon payments (including the frequency of coupon resets, if applicable), price and par value and call features, in addition to the amount of time until the security matures.Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in a portfolio of preferred and other income securities issued by U.S. and non-U.S. companies, which may be either exchange-traded or available over-the-counter ( OTC). Such securities include traditional preferred securities; hybrid preferred securities that have investment and economic characteristics of both preferred stock and debt securities; floating rate preferred securities; corporate debt securities; convertible securities;contingent capital securities (CoCos); and securities of other open-end, closed-end or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that invest primarily in preferred and/or debt securities as described here in. To the extent the Fund invests in securities of other open-end, closed-end or ETFs, the Fund will consider the investments of these funds, to the extent known by the Fund, in determining compliance with this policy. The Fund may also invest in certain restricted securities including securities that are only eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of1933 (the Securities Act) (referred to as Rule 144A Securities) and securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers that are issued through private offerings without registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) pursuant to Regulation under the Securities Act.
