The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company,

Past performance is no assurance of future results. Investment return and
market value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate. Shares, when sold,
may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Principal Risk Factors: The Fund invests principally in equity securities of
companies in the infrastructure and utilities industry in various developed
markets; accordingly the Fund’s NAV will fluctuate with changes in the value
of the Fund’s holdings. Investment in infrastructure and utilities issuers is
subject to various risks including governmental regulations, high interest
costs associated with capital construction programs, costs associated with
environmental regulation, the effects of economic slowdown and surplus
capacity, competition from other providers of services and other factors.
Investment in non-U.S. securities is subject to the risk of currency
fluctuations and to economic and political risks associated with such foreign
countries. The risks of investing in the Fund are spelled out in the
prospectus, shareholder report and other regulatory filings.
