There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. There are risks associated with the sale and purchase of call and put options. As the buyer of a put option, the Fund assumes the risk of a rise in the market price of the underlying security above the exercise price of the option which will cause a loss of the premium paid for the option. As a seller (writer) of a put option, the Fund will lose money if the value of the security falls below the strike price. Fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. There are risks associated with the sale and purchase of call and put options. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
