| New York Stock Exchange: DNI
Dividend and Income Fund (the "Fund") (NYSE: DNI) is a closed end fund with the primary investment objective of seeking high current income. Capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The Fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 50% of its total assets in income generating equity securities, including dividend paying common stocks, convertible securities, preferred stocks, securities of registered investment companies (including, but not limited to, closed end funds, open end funds, and business development companies ("BDC")) (collectively, "investment companies"), exchange traded funds ("ETFs") organized as investment companies or otherwise, real estate investment trusts ("REITs"), depositary receipts, and other equity related securities (collectively, "Income Generating Equity Securities").
The Fund may invest in fixed income securities ("Debt Securities"), including bonds issued by domestic and foreign corporate and government issuers. The Fund may also invest in equity securities of other issuers, including investment companies, ETFs and REITs, deemed by Bexil Advisers LLC, the Fund's investment manager (the "Investment Manager"), not to be Income Generating Equity Securities based on the issuer's income generation, objectives, policies, holdings, or similar criteria. The Debt Securities in which the Fund may invest include high yield, high risk securities which are rated below investment grade, including the lowest rating categories, or are unrated but are determined by the Investment Manager to be of comparable quality, and are considered speculative and subject to certain risks that may be greater than those of higher rated securities. The Fund may invest in securities of domestic or foreign issuers of any size. There is no assurance the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.
