An investment in the Fund is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. An investment in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or even all of your investment. Therefore, prospective investors should consider carefully the Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses and should consult with a tax, legal or financial advisor before making any investment decision. Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value.
Senior Loans. Senior loans are usually rated below investment grade and may also be unrated. As a result, the risks associated with senior loans are similar to the risks of below investment grade fixed income instruments and may be considered speculative. Senior loans are subject to a number of risks, including liquidity risk and the risk of non-payment of scheduled interest or principal. There may be less readily available and reliable information about most senior loans than is the case for many other types of securities. As a result, Apollo will rely primarily on its own evaluation of a borrower's credit quality.
Corporate Bonds. The Fund may invest in a wide variety of bonds of varying maturities issued by U.S. and foreign corporations, other business entities, governments and municipalities and other issuers. The Fund's investments in corporate bonds may include, but are not limited to, senior, junior, secured and unsecured bonds, notes and other debt securities, and may be fixed rate, variable rate or floating rate, among other things. Apollo expects most of the corporate bonds in which the Fund invests will be high yield bonds (commonly referred to as "junk" bonds), which may be considered speculative. The market value of a corporate bond generally may be expected to rise and fall inversely with interest rates. The value of intermediate and longer-term corporate bonds normally fluctuates more in response to changes in interest rates than does the value of shorter-term corporate bonds. The market value of a corporate bond also may be affected by investors' perceptions of the creditworthiness of the issuer, the issuer's performance and perceptions of the issuer in the marketplace.
Structured Products. Investments in structured products involve risks, including credit risk and market risk. When the Funds' investments in structured products (such as collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations and asset-backed securities) are based upon the movement of one or more factors, including currency exchange rates, interest rates, reference bonds (or loans) or stock indices, depending on the factor used and the use of multipliers or deflators, changes in interest rates and movement of any factor may cause significant price fluctuations. Additionally, changes in the reference instrument or security may cause the interest rate on a structured product to be reduced to zero and any further changes in the reference instrument may then reduce the principal amount payable on maturity of the structured product. Structured products may be less liquid than other types of securities and more volatile than the reference instrument or security underlying the product.
Leverage Risk. The Fund intends to utilize leverage and may utilize leverage to the maximum extent permitted by law. The use of leverage to purchase additional securities creates an opportunity for increased common share dividends, but also creates risks for shareholders, including increased variability of the Fund's net income, distributions and/or net asset value in relation to market changes. Leverage is a speculative technique that exposes the Fund to greater risk and increased costs than if it were not implemented. Increases and decreases in the value of the Fund's portfolio will be magnified when the Fund uses leverage.
Additional Risks. The Fund may be subject to additional risks, including, but not limited to, credit risk, risks of investing in below investment grade securities, interest rate risk, and risks of investing in illiquid securities.
