The changes aim to create a more diversified portfolio that can potentially provide lower volatility and higher risk-adjusted returns, while maintaining a focus on monthly income generation.

The fund’s combination of high-yielding common equities and preferred shares, coupled with high-yield and corporate bonds, results in a balanced yield portfolio. The portfolio provides a diversified source of dividend and interest income along with growth potential from stock price increases.

All changes will be effective at the close of business on Jan. 19, 2018.
