Dynamic Financial Strategies Income Term Trust



The Angel Oak Dynamic Financial Strategies Income Term Trust is a closed-end fund that seeks current income with a secondary objective of total return. The Fund is designed to identify compelling opportunities in U.S. financial sector debt. The investment highlights of the Fund include:

  • Focus on high-quality credit with at least 80% of the portfolio rated investment grade, or unrated, but judged to
    be of investment grade quality by Angel Oak
  • Access to a niche market segment
  • Attractive relative value opportunity as financial sector debt has lagged the broader investment grade rebound
  • Asset class duration historically uncorrelated to interest rates
  • Benefits from Angel Oak’s extensive resources and expertise in actively managing financial sector debt investments

1Managed Assets means the total assets of the Trust (including any assets attributable to leverage) minus the sum of accrued liabilities (other than debt representing financial leverage).

2The inception date of the Angel Oak Dynamic Financial Strategies Income Term Trust (DYFN) was 6/26/20.

3Distribution Rate: Distribution rates are calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution paid or declared through today’s date and then dividing by the market price on the last day of the quarter. The distribution consists of the sum of net investment income, net realized short-term capital gains, net realized long-term capital gains, and return of capital. Distribution rates may vary. Any distribution adjustment will not be reflected until after the declaration date for the next distribution. See the Fund’s 19a-1 Notices, if any, located under the “Tax Notices” section of the website for estimates of distribution sources. Final determination of the source and tax status of all distributions paid in the current year will be made after year-end.
