purposes. This differs from most investment companies, which are treated
as “regulated investment companies” under the Code and do not pay entity
level income taxes.

The Fund’s concentration in securities of MLPs involves risks that
differ from investments in common stock, including risks related to: (1)
limited control and rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP; (2)
potential conflicts of interest between the MLP and its general partner;
(3) cash flow; (4) dilution; and (5) the general partner’s limited call
right. Actual results, performance or events may also be affected by,
without limitation, (1) general economic conditions, (2) performance of
financial markets, (3) interest rate levels, (4) changes in laws and
regulations and (5) changes in the policies of governments and/or
regulatory authorities. An investor’s shares, when sold, may be worth
more or less than their original cost. MLPs may have additional
expenses, as some MLPs pay incentive distribution fees to their general
partners. Infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the
industry they serve including, but not limited to commodity price
fluctuations; reduced volumes of energy commodities available for
transporting, processing, storing or distributing; changes in the
economy or regulatory environment; and extreme weather. The Fund invests
primarily in energy infrastructure companies which may be adversely
affected by changes in worldwide energy prices, exploration, production
spending, government regulation, changes in exchange rates and depletion
of natural resources.
