The investment seeks high current income; capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes in income-producing securities. Its portfolio will typically include a high proportion, perhaps even 100%, of high-yield/high-risk securities rated below investment grade.
