Investments in securities of MLPs involve risks that differ from
an investment in common stock. MLPs are controlled by their general
partners, which generally have conflicts of interest and limited
fiduciary duties to the MLP, which may permit the general partner
to favor its own interests over the MLPs.

as partnerships for federal income tax purposes. As a partnership,
an MLP has no federal income tax liability at the entity level.
Therefore, treatment of one or more MLPs as a corporation for
federal income tax purposes could affect the Fund's ability to meet
its investment objective and would reduce the amount of cash
available to pay or distribute to you. Legislative, judicial, or
administrative changes and differing interpretations, possibly on a
retroactive basis, could negatively impact the value of an
investment in MLPs and therefore the value of your investment in

experience greater volatility than a fund investing in a broader
range of industries.
The Fund may be subject to risks relating to its investment in
Canadian securities. Because the Fund will invest in securities
denominated in foreign currencies and the income received by the
Fund will generally be in foreign currency, changes in currency
exchange rates may negatively impact the Fund's return.

American energy infrastructure companies that engage in the
transportation, storage and processing of energy commodities.
