About AFT

AFT’s investment objective is to seek current income and preservation of capital. AFT will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in senior, secured loans made to companies whose debt is rated below investment grade (“Senior Loans”) and investments with similar characteristics. Senior Loans typically hold a first lien priority and pay interest at rates that are determined periodically on the basis of a floating base lending rate plus a spread. These base lending rates are primarily the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), and secondarily the prime rate offered by one or more major United States banks and the certificate of deposit rate used by commercial lenders. Senior Loans are typically made to U.S. and, to a limited extent, non-U.S. corporations, partnerships and other business entities (“Borrower(s)”) that operate in various industries and geographical regions. AFT seeks to generate current income and preservation of capital through a disciplined approach to credit selection and under normal market conditions will invest at least 80% of its managed assets in floating rate Senior Loans and investments with similar economic characteristics. This policy and AFT’s investment objective are not fundamental and may be changed by the board of directors of AFT with at least 60 days’ prior written notice provided to shareholders. Part of AFT’s investment objective is to seek preservation of capital. AFT’s ability to achieve capital preservation may be limited by its investment in credit instruments that have speculative characteristics. There can be no assurance that AFT will achieve its investment objective.
