Past performance is no assurance of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate. Shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost.Principal Risk Factors: This closed-end fund invests in below investment grade senior loans. Investment in the Fund involves the risk that borrowers may default on obligations, or that lenders may have difficulty liquidating the collateral securing the loans or enforcing their rights under the terms of the senior loans. Senior loans are subject to credit risk and the potential for non-payment of scheduled principal or interest payments, which may result in a reduction of the Fund’s NAV. The use of leverage for investment purposes increases both investment opportunity and investment risk. In the event of a default on one or more loans or other interest-bearing instruments held by the Fund, the use of leverage would exaggerate the loss to the Fund and may exaggerate the effect on the Fund's NAV. The risks of investing in the Fund are spelled out in the prospectus, shareholder reports and other regulatory filings.
