The investment manager and certain of its affiliates have contractually (for at least the current fiscal year) and/or voluntarily agreed to waive certain fees and/or to reimburse certain expenses of the Fund, as described in the Fund's prospectus, unless sooner terminated at the sole discretion of the Fund's board. Voluntary waivers/reimbursement arrangements, if any, may be discontinued at any time. Without such waivers/reimbursements, the Fund’s returns would be lower.
