A prominent proxy advisory firm initially published a "Withhold" recommendation for Mr. McLernon through an inadvertent misapplication of its policy regarding diversity in the composition of a board of directors. This recommendation was subsequently corrected and revised to a "For" recommendation; however, such revision was published after a number of proxies were submitted. Accordingly, the proxy voting results for Mr. McLernon may have been affected by the initial recommendation.

 

Appointment of Auditors 
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was re-appointed as auditor of the Fund and the Trustees are authorized to fix the remuneration to be paid to the auditor.
