The investment seeks above average income and long-term growth of capital, with reduced volatility compared to broader equity markets, as a secondary objective. Under normal market conditions, the adviser primarily invests in dividend-paying equity securities, including common and preferred stocks of utilities, infrastructure-related, real estate-related and other companies. Typically, the adviser allocates 50% or more of the fund's total assets to real estate securities ("Real Estate Securities"). The fund also may invest up to 25% of its total assets in the securities of master limited partnerships ("MLPs").
