Taxable-Equivalent Distribution Rate is computed using an effective tax rate of 43.4%, which includes the maximum federal tax rate of 39.6% and the net investment income tax rate of 3.8%.

The funds are closed-end investment companies. Four of these funds trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the following symbols: MHI, MAV, PHT, and PHD. HNW trades on the NYSE MKT. Pioneer Investment Management, Inc. is each fund's investment adviser.

Keep in mind, dividends are not guaranteed. Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered. There is a one-time public offering and once issued, common shares of closed-end funds are bought and sold in the open market through a stock exchange and frequently trade at prices lower than their net asset value. Net Asset Value (NAV) is total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of common shares outstanding.
