Closed-end Funds

A closed-end fund is a publicly traded investment company that raises a fixed amount of capital through an initial public offering (IPO). The closed-end fund is then structured, listed and traded like a stock on a stock exchange. Closed-end funds raise a prescribed amount of capital only once through an IPO by issuing a fixed amount of shares, which are purchased by investors in the closed-end fund as stock. Unlike regular stocks, closed-end funds represent an interest in a specialized portfolio of securities that is actively managed and which typically concentrates on a specific industry, geographic market or sector. 

Manulife Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund

The Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of investments in senior floating rate loans and, to a lesser extent, other short duration credit securities.

Principal Protected Notes (PPNs)

Principal protected notes (also referred to as deposit notes), are a type of investment that combines the benefits of principal protection at maturity with equity market growth potential. The return is usually linked to the performance of an equity investment and the term to maturity is generally six to eight years. If held to maturity, principal protected notes allow the investor to participate in equity markets with confidence, knowing their principal is protected.
