The Fund offers a portfolio of energy master limited partnerships (MLPs) with a focus on MLPs with higher distribution growth rates.
The Fund’s investment objective is to provide a high level of total return, consisting of cash distributions and capital appreciation. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.
The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in energy master limited partnerships (“MLPs”). Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its Managed Assets in energy MLPs (the “80% policy”).

Energy entities are engaged in the business of exploring, developing, producing, gathering, transporting, processing, storing, refining, distributing, mining or marketing natural gas, natural gas liquids (including propane), crude oil, refined petroleum products or coal. “Managed Assets” means net assets plus the amount of any borrowings and assets attributable to any preferred stock of the Fund that may be outstanding. Currently, the Fund has no intention of issuing preferred stock.
