*HNW currently has a level distribution policy, which is intended to provide investors with a relatively stable monthly distribution. The level distribution policy is subject to regular review by the Board of Trustees to determine whether it continues to be in the best interests of the fund and its shareholders. There can be no assurance that this policy will be maintained in the future or maintained at its current level. Investors should not necessarily draw any conclusions about the fund's investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the fund's level distribution policy. If the fund estimates that any portion of a distribution may be comprised of amounts from sources other than net investment income, then the fund will notify shareholders of the estimated composition of the distribution through a separate written Section 19(a) Notice. Section 19(a) Notices are provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used for tax reporting purposes. Final tax characteristics of all fund distributions will be provided on Form 1099-DIV, which is mailed after the close of the calendar year.

**The distribution for MAV contains approximately $0.031770 per share of taxable income. This is a one-time taxable distribution in 2019.

***The distribution for MHI contains approximately $0.035456 per share of taxable income. This is a one-time taxable distribution in 2019.

The closing market price and NAV are based on data as of December 2, 2019. The Market Price Distribution Rate is calculated by dividing the latest declared monthly distribution per share (annualized) by the market price. The NAV Distribution Rate is calculated by dividing the latest declared monthly distribution per share (annualized) by the NAV per share.

The funds are closed-end investment companies. Four of these funds trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the following symbols: MHI, MAV, PHT, and PHD. HNW trades on the NYSEAMER.

Keep in mind, distribution rates are not guaranteed. A fund’s distribution rate may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in actual or projected investment income, the level of undistributed net investment income, if any, and other factors. Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s investment performance based on a fund’s current distributions. Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered. Once issued, common shares of closed-end funds are bought and sold in the open market through a stock exchange and frequently trade at prices lower than their net asset value. Net Asset Value (NAV) is total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of common shares outstanding.
