NexPoint Event Driven Fund

Fund Update: January 14, 2021

On October 15, 2021, the Board of Trustees of HFI (the “Board”), on behalf of the Fund, approved certain changes related to the repositioning of the Fund’s investment strategy such that it will seek to invest primarily in securities that the Fund’s investment adviser expects to benefit from an event catalyst. These changes included changing the Fund’s name and removing the former policy to invest at least 80% of the value of its total assets in securities of healthcare companies. The shareholders of the Fund at a special meeting of shareholders held on January 14, 2022 approved an amendment to the Fund’s fundamental investment policy regarding industry concentration to remove the requirement to invest at least 25% of the Fund’s total assets in securities of issuers in the industry group consisting of healthcare companies.
