About the Fund
The Fund's primary investment objective is to seek current income, with
a secondary objective of capital appreciation. The Fund invests globally
in dividend-paying or income-generating securities across multiple asset
classes, including but not limited to: equity securities of large,
well-established companies, securities issued by real estate companies
(including real estate investment trusts and real estate industry
operating companies), debt securities (such as government bonds,
investment grade and high risk, high yield corporate bonds, and
convertible bonds), and emerging market securities. The Fund also
utilizes enhanced income strategies by engaging in dividend capture
trading, option overwriting, and realization of gains on the sale of
securities, dividend growth, and currency forwards.
Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest: (1) at most 60% of
its net assets in securities of U.S. issuers; and (2) at least 40% of
its net assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers, unless market
conditions are not deemed favorable by the Manager, in which case, the
Fund would invest at least 30% of its net assets in securities of
non-U.S. issuers. In addition, the Fund utilizes leveraging techniques
in an attempt to obtain higher return for the Fund. There is no
assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.
