A Fund's net asset value ("NAV") per share will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the fund's portfolio securities. Closed end funds are traded on the secondary market through a stock exchange. Investors acquire shares of a fund on a securities exchange at market value. Shares of closed end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net asset value (NAV) of the fund's portfolio. The closed end fund's principal value will fluctuate so that and investor's shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. The market price for a closed-end fund is based on supply and demand which fluctuates daily based on many factors, such as market risk, business risk, economic conditions and global events, investor sentiment, and security-specific factors. Consequently, you can lose money by investing in a closed end fund.
