Notes to Schedule of Investments (Unaudited)
Valuation of Investments: Debt securities, including U.S. government securities, listed corporate bonds, other fixed income and asset-backed securities, and unlisted securities and private placement securities, are generally valued at the bid prices furnished by an independent pricing service or, if not valued by an independent pricing service, using bid prices obtained from active and reliable market makers in any such security or a broker-dealer. The broker-dealers or pricing services use multiple valuation techniques to determine fair value. In instances where sufficient market activity exists, the broker-dealers or pricing services may utilize a market-based approach through which quotes from market makers are used to determine fair value. In instances where sufficient market activity may not exist or is limited, the broker-dealers or pricing services utilize proprietary valuation models which may consider market transactions in comparable securities and the various relationships between securities in determining fair value and/or market characteristics such as benchmark yield curves, option-adjusted spreads, credit spreads, estimated default rates, coupon-rates, anticipated timing of principal repayments, underlying collateral, and other unique security features in order to estimate the relevant cash flows, which are then discounted to calculate the fair values. Short-term debt securities with remaining maturities of sixty days or less are valued at amortized cost with interest accrued or discount accreted to the date of maturity, unless such valuation, in the judgment of Brookfield Investment Management Inc.’s (the “Adviser”) Valuation Committee, does not represent market value.
Investments in equity securities listed or traded on any securities exchange or traded in the over-the-counter market are valued at the trade price as of the close of business on the valuation date. Investments in open-end registered investment companies, if any, are valued at the net asset value (“NAV”) as reported by those investment companies.
Fair valuation procedures may be used to value a portion of the assets of the Fund. The Fund may use the fair value of a security to calculate its NAV when, for example, (1) a portfolio security is not traded in a public market or the principal market in which the security trades is closed, (2) trading in a portfolio security is suspended and not resumed prior to the normal market close, (3) a portfolio security is not traded in significant volume for a substantial period, or (4) the Adviser determines that the quotation or price for a portfolio security provided by a broker-dealer or an independent pricing service is inaccurate.
The fair value of securities may be difficult to determine and thus judgment plays a greater role in the valuation process. The fair valuation methodology may include or consider the following guidelines, as appropriate: (1) evaluation of all relevant factors, including but not limited to, pricing history, current market level, supply and demand of the respective security; (2) comparison to the values and current pricing of securities that have comparable characteristics; (3) knowledge of historical market information with respect to the security; (4) other factors relevant to the security which would include, but not be limited to, duration, yield, fundamental analytical data, the Treasury yield curve, and credit quality.
The values assigned to fair valued investments are based on available information and do not necessarily represent amounts that might ultimately be realized, since such amounts depend on future developments inherent in long-term investments. Changes in the fair valuation of portfolio securities may be less frequent and of greater magnitude than changes in the price of portfolio securities valued at their last sale price, by an independent pricing service, or based on market quotations. Imprecision in estimating fair value can also impact the amount of unrealized appreciation or depreciation recorded for a particular portfolio security and differences in the assumptions used could result in a different determination of fair value, and those differences could be material.

The Fund’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) has adopted procedures for the valuation of the Fund’s securities. The Adviser oversees the day to day responsibilities for valuation determinations under these procedures. The Board regularly reviews the application of these procedures to the securities in the Fund’s portfolio. Pursuant to the procedures, securities in the Fund are valued using unadjusted quoted market prices, when available, as supplied primarily by third party pricing services or dealers. However, if (i) a market value or price is not readily available, (ii) the available quotations are not believed to be reflective of market value by the Adviser, or (iii) a significant event has occurred that would materially affect the value of the security, the security is fair valued, as determined in good faith, by the Adviser’s Valuation Committee. The Adviser’s Valuation Committee is comprised of senior members of the Adviser’s management team. There can be no assurance that the Fund could purchase or sell a portfolio security at the price used to calculate the Fund’s NAV. As of September 30, 2015, there were no Fund securities that were fair valued by the Adviser’s Valuation Committee.
The Fund has established methods of fair value measurements in accordance with GAAP. Fair value denotes the price that the Fund would receive upon selling an investment in a timely transaction to an independent buyer in the principal or most advantageous market of the investment. A three-tier hierarchy has been established to maximize the use of observable market data and minimize the use of unobservable inputs and to establish classification of fair value measurements for disclosure purposes. Inputs refer broadly to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk, for example, the risk inherent in a particular valuation technique used to measure fair value including such a pricing model and/or the risk inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. Inputs may be observable or unobservable. Observable inputs are inputs that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. The three-tier hierarchy of inputs is summarized in the three broad levels listed below.
Level 1 -
quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 -
quoted prices in markets that are not active or other significant observable inputs (including, but not limited to: quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices based on recently executed transactions, interest rates, credit risk, etc.)
Level 3 -
significant unobservable inputs (including the Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of assets or liabilities)

The Adviser’s valuation policy, as previously stated, establishes parameters for the sources and types of valuation analysis, as well as, the methodologies and inputs the Adviser uses in determining fair value, including the use of the Adviser’s Valuation Committee. If the Adviser’s Valuation Committee determines that additional techniques, sources or inputs are appropriate or necessary in a given situation, such additional work will be undertaken.


Significant increases or decreases in any of the unobservable inputs in isolation may result in a lower or higher fair value measurement.

To assess the continuing appropriateness of security valuations, the Adviser (or its third party service provider, who is subject to oversight by the Adviser), regularly compares one of its prior day prices, prices on comparable securities and sale prices to the current day prices and challenges those prices that exceed certain tolerance levels with the third party pricing service or broker source. For those securities valued by fair valuations, the Adviser’s Valuation Committee reviews and affirms the reasonableness of the valuations based on such methodologies and fair valuation determinations on a regular basis after considering all relevant information that is reasonably available.

The inputs or methodology used for valuing investments are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.

The following table summarizes the Fund’s investments categorized in the disclosure hierarchy as of September 30, 2015:

The fair value of the Fund’s credit facility, which qualifies as a financial instrument under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 “Disclosures about Fair Values of Financial Instruments”, approximates the carrying amount of $92,560,000. As of September 30, 2015, this financial instrument is categorized as a Level 2 within the disclosure hierarchy.

Level 2 common stocks are fair valued using a factor as a result of market movements following the close of local trading. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, there was a transfer from Level 2 to Level 1 of $997,360, which represents a security that was previously priced using the adjusted price and currently priced using the market close price. There were no additional transfers between levels. The basis for recognizing and valuing transfers is as of the end of the period in which transfers occur.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Fund did not invest in any Level 3 securities.

Forward Currency Contracts: A forward currency contract (“forward contract”) is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell a currency at an agreed upon price for settlement at a future date. During the period the forward contract is in existence, changes in the value of the forward contract will fluctuate with changes in the currency exchange rates. The forward contract is marked to market daily and these changes are recorded as an unrealized gain or loss. Gain or loss on the purchase or sale of a forward contract is realized on the settlement date.

The Fund invests in forward contracts to hedge against fluctuations in the value of foreign currencies caused by changes in the prevailing currency exchange rates. The use of forward contracts involves the risk that the counterparties may be unable to meet the terms of their contracts and may be negatively impacted from unanticipated movements in the value of a foreign currency relative to the U.S. dollar.

All forward contracts were entered into with JPMorgan Chase as the counterparty. As of September 30, 2015, the following forward contract was outstanding:
Currency to be
U.S. $ Value
at September
30, 2015
Currency to be
 88,000,000 Euros
 99,160,160 U.S. Dollars

Credit facility: The Fund established a line of credit with BNP Paribas for investment purposes subject to the limitations of the 1940 Act for borrowings by registered investment companies. The Fund pays interest in the amount of 0.70% plus the 3-month London Interbank Offered Rate on the amount outstanding and 0.70% on the line of credit that is unused. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the average interest rate paid on the line of credit was 0.99% of the average total line of credit amount available to the Fund. Effective June 2, 2015, the Fund increased its total line of credit amount from $90 million to $120 million.
