    Fund Summary

    The investment seeks to provide current income. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in preferred securities at the time of each purchase. It concentrates its investments (invests more than 25% of its net assets) in securities in the U.S. and non-U.S. financial services (i.e., banking, insurance and commercial finance,) industry. The fund also regularly invests in the real estate investment trust (i.e. REIT) and utility industries. This strategy seeks to produce gains regardless of the directional movement of U.S. Treasuries, credit spreads and interest rates while mitigating volatility. View More
