163(j) Interest Income Dividends for Corporate Investors Reporting

Updated for 2022

A portion of ordinary dividends received may be eligible to be treated by corporate shareholders as Section 163(j) interest dividends and thus qualify as business interest income when determining the limitation on their business interest expense deduction. To determine the amount of each dividend you received in calendar year 2021 that is eligible to be treated as business interest income, multiply the ordinary dividend income received by the corresponding Section 163(j) interest dividend percentage provided.

This fund is an actively managed ETF that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. To determine whether to buy or sell a security, the portfolio managers consider, among other things, various fund requirements and standards, along with economic conditions, alternative investments, interest rates and various credit metrics. If the portfolio manager considerations are inaccurate or misapplied, the fund's performance may suffer.

Ordinary dividends includes net investment income distributions and short-term capital gain distributions.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price (not NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
