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 Fund focuses its investments in the energy infrastructure sector, which may cause the performance of the Fund to be tied closely to developments in the energy sector. The Fund investments may include foreign securities. Foreign companies are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as domestic securities thereby resulting in less publicly available information. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. Investments in MLPs and MLP-related securities involve risks different from those of investing in common stocks. Potential risks include conflicts of interest between an MLP and the MLP’s general partner, cash flow risks, and dilution risks. MLPs and MLP-related securities are generally considered interest-rate sensitive investments. Depending on the state of interest rates in general, the use of MLPs could enhance or harm the overall performance of the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
