DI Wire Additional Risk Disclosures
The FTSE NAREIT All Equity REITs Index is a free-float adjusted, market capitalization-weighted index of U.S. Equity REITs. Constituents of the Index include all tax-qualified REITs with more than 50 percent of total assets in qualifying real estate assets other than mortgages secured by real property.
Credit is a category that invests in real estate companies through loan obligations, which typically includes instruments such as commercial mortgage backed securities, preferred equity, and bonds. This category may benefit from a higher claim on the assets and earnings of a company than common equity, does not have voting rights, and pays a fixed dividend with a yield usually above that of common equity.
Public Equity is a category of public REITs, REOCs and public investment funds that are intended to generate current income and substantial liquidity.
Private Equity is a category of private real estate equity funds that are intended to generate higher absolute returns than are typically available from investing in public equity and it may offer lower correlation to the broader equity markets.

Investing involves risk. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Alternative investment funds, ETFs, interval funds, and closed-end funds are subject to management and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. Preferred securities are subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. Convertible securities are typically issued as bonds or preferred shares with the option to convert to equities. As a result, convertible securities are hybrids that have characteristics of both bonds and common stocks and are subject to risks associated with both debt securities and equity securities. Issuers of debt securities may not make scheduled interest and principal payments, resulting in losses to the Fund. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities. The use of leverage, such as borrowing money to purchase securities, will cause the Fund to incur additional expenses and magnify the Fund’s gains or losses.
There currently is no secondary market for the Fund’s shares and the Fund expects that no secondary market will develop. Shares of the Fund will not be listed on any securities exchange, which makes them inherently illiquid. An investment in the Fund’s shares is not suitable for investors who cannot tolerate risk of loss or who require liquidity, other than liquidity provided through the Fund’s repurchase policy. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers, regardless of how the Fund performs. A portion of the Fund’s distribution has been comprised of a return of capital because certain Fund investments have included preferred and common equity investments, which may include a return of capital. Any invested capital that is returned to the shareholder will be reduced by the Fund’s fees and expenses, as well as the applicable sales load. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. The Fund will not invest in real estate directly, but because the Fund will concentrate its investments in securities of REITs, its portfolio will be significantly impacted by the performance of the real estate market. There are risks associated with REITs. Risks include declines from deteriorating economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property, and defaults by borrowers. The sales of securities to fund repurchases could reduce the market price of those securities, which in turn would reduce the Fund’s NAV.
