Putnam manages four closed-end funds that feature a broad range of taxable and tax-exempt fixed-income strategies.
Unlike open-end funds, which can issue an unlimited number of shares for direct purchase by investors, closed-end funds issue a fixed number of shares that are listed and traded on a national stock exchange. Putnam closed-end fund shares are available for purchase and sale on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Shares of closed-end funds trade at their market price, which may be higher or lower than a fund's net asset value (NAV) per share. Shares of open-end funds, by contrast, trade at NAV, though they may be subject to sales charges. The market price of closed-end fund shares generally reflects investment results of the underlying portfolio, but it may also be influenced by other factors, such as changes in investor perceptions of the fund or its investment advisor, market conditions, fluctuations in supply and demand for the fund's shares, and changes in fund distributions.

Data is historical. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. More recent returns may be less or more than those shown. Investment return, net asset value, and market price will fluctuate, and you may have a gain or a loss when you sell your shares. Each fund's shares trade on a stock exchange at market prices, which may be lower than the fund's net asset value. Performance does not reflect taxes.

Dividend rate at market price is calculated by annualizing the most recent dividend paid and dividing it by the current market price. Dividend rates are subject to change based on a fund's earnings and other factors.
