Investments in mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities and other structured finance instruments include additional risks that investors should be aware of, such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. The Fund will concentrate its investments in commercial mortgage-backed securities (“CMBS”) and, therefore, will be subject to the risks associated with these securities, including risks associated with the underlying mortgages, to a greater degree than a fund that does not concentrate in such securities. Investments in non-investment grade and unrated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Derivatives involve risks different from and, in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Investments in non-investment grade and unrated securities, derivatives, and restricted securities tend to involve greater liquidity risk. The Fund is non-diversified and, therefore, may be more susceptible to being adversely affected by a single corporate, economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund. Any use of leverage by the Fund may exaggerate the effect of any increase or decrease in the value of securities in the Fund’s portfolio on the Fund’s Net Asset Value and, therefore, may increase the volatility of the Fund. The Fund is new and the Fund’s investment adviser has not previously served as investment adviser to a registered investment company. For more information on these risks and other risks of the Fund, please see the Prospectus.
