Board of Directors
Our business and affairs are managed under the direction of our Board of Directors. The Board currently consists of five members, each of whom is not an “interested person” of the Fund, as that term is defined in Section 2(a)(19) of the 1940 Act, and thus are considered independent directors.
The Directors are fiduciaries for the Fund’s shareholders and are governed by the laws of the State of Maryland in this regard. The Board establishes policies for the operation of the Fund and appoints the officers who conduct the daily business of the Fund. Please note that there is only one fund in the complex that is overseen by the Directors.
