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). For this purpose, if 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 based on total assets.
