Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer's ability to repay
interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings
shown are based on each portfolio security's rating as provided by
Standard and Poor's, Moody's Investors Service and/or Fitch
Ratings, Ltd. and typically range from AAA (highest) to D
(lowest), or an equivalent and/or similar rating. For this
purpose, when two or more of the agencies have assigned differing
ratings to a security, the highest rating is used. Securities that
are unrated by all three agencies are reflected as such. The
credit quality of the investments in the Fund's portfolio does not
apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. These ratings are
updated monthly and may change over time. Please note, the Fund
itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency.

*** The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due
primarily to the Fund's use of preferred shares; net assets do not
include preferred shares. The Fund may employ leverage in the form
of preferred stock and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages
in transactions that have a leveraging effect on the Fund's
portfolio, the value of the Fund will be more volatile and all other
risks will tend to be compounded.
**** Percentages are based on total assets. If the Fund employs leverage,
the Effective Duration is based on net assets.
