Investments in closed end funds are subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest. The value of these securities, like other market investments, may move up or down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. At any point in time an investment may be worth less than the original investment, even after considering the reinvestment of fund dividends and distributions. Closed-end funds also carry price risk, or the risk that shares may trade at prices different from their net asset values.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The RiverNorth Core Opportunity Fund (RNCOX) was rated against 932 U.S.-domiciled Moderate Allocation funds in the last three years. With respect to these Moderate Allocation funds, the RiverNorth Core Opportunity Fund (RNCOX) received a Morningstar Rating of 5 stars for the three year period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
