Due to the acquisition of the NT High Income Fund on May 27, 2022, the High Income Fund has paid capital gains distributions in May of 2022. All earnings, including income and gains, were paid out prior to the merger to ensure both sets of shareholders involved in the merger receive the appropriate level of earnings.

Generally, as interest rates rise, the value of the securities held in the fund will decline. The opposite is true when interest rates decline.
