If the Company estimates that it has distributed more than its income and capital gains in the current fiscal year, a portion of its distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of a shareholder’s investment is paid back to the shareholder. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect a Company's investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’. Although the character of income will not be determined until the end of the Company's fiscal year, please refer to the Announcements section of the Company website for notices that provide estimated amounts and sources of the Company's distributions, which should not be relied upon for tax reporting purposes. A Form T5 for the calendar year will be sent to shareholders to illustrate how the Company's distributions should be reported for federal income tax purposes. Distribution rates are not guaranteed and will fluctuate with market conditions. Distribution Rates represent the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the market price and NAV as of ex-dividend date. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation.

Uncovering opportunities in Asia

Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.

Important information

International investing entails special risk considerations, including currency fluctuations, lower liquidity, economic and political risks, and differences in accounting methods; these risks are generally heightened for emerging market investments. Concentrating investments in the Asia-Pacific region subjects the Fund to more volatility and greater risk of loss than geographically diverse funds. Fixed income securities are subject to certain risks including, but not limited to: interest rate (changes in interest rates may cause a decline in the market value of an investment), credit (changes in the financial condition of the issuer, borrower, counterparty, or underlying collateral), prepayment (debt issuers may repay or refinance their loans or obligations earlier than anticipated), and extension (principal repayments may not occur as quickly as anticipated, causing the expected maturity of a security to increase).

Closed-end funds are traded on the secondary market through one of the stock exchanges. The Fund’s investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net asset value (NAV) of the fund’s portfolio. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
