A Record of Regular Distributions
Quarterly Distribution Yield – Class I Shares (6/30/07 – 12/31/19)
Distribution yields are as of each quarter-end. Data is for Class A Shares from 6/30/07 – 3/31/09 and Class I Shares from 4/30/09 – Present. Class I Shares became available in 2009. Distribution Yield is calculated by taking the trailing 365 days of distributions and dividing by the net asset value on the last business day for the same period. The yield does not include long- or short-term capital gains distributions. As of 12/31/19, the 30-Day SEC Yield with/without waivers was 3.63%. 30-Day SEC yield is a standardized yield calculated based on a snapshot of current underlying holdings and doesn’t account for active trading throughout a full calendar year.
