3The net expense ratio (excluding dividend and interest expenses) and total operating expense ratio (after expense reductions) are a percentage of average net assets for the year ended December 31, 2019 and are based on the expense limitation for such period. The expense limitation may be different in future years. The Adviser has entered into an Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund under which it has agreed to waive or reduce its fees and to assume other expenses of the Fund, if necessary, in an amount that limits extraordinary expenses (as determined in the sole discretion of the Adviser) to not more than 0.25 percent of the average daily net assets for the Fund at least until April 30, 2021. The Fund may terminate the Expense Limitation Agreement at any time. The Expense Limitation Agreement permits the Adviser to recoup waived or reimbursed amounts within the three-year period from the date of the waiver after the Adviser bears the expense, provided total expenses, including such recoupment, do not exceed the annual expense limit in effect at the time of such waiver/reimbursement or recoupment.
