Objectives and Strategies

Bexil Investment Trust (the “Fund”) (Stock Symbol: BXSY) is a Delaware statutory trust registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), as a diversified, closed end management investment company. The Fund’s primary investment objective is to seek high current income. Capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The Fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 50% of its total assets in income generating equity securities, including dividend paying common stocks, convertible securities, preferred stocks, securities of registered investment companies (including, but not limited to, closed end and open end management investment companies and business development companies (collectively, “investment companies”)), exchange-traded funds organized as investment companies or otherwise, real estate investment trusts, depositary receipts, and other equity related securities (collectively, “Income Generating Equity Securities”).

The Fund may invest in fixed income securities, including bonds issued by domestic and foreign corporate and government issuers. The Fund may also invest in equity securities of other issuers, including investment companies, exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, deemed by Bexil Advisers LLC, the Fund’s investment manager (the “Investment Manager”), not to be Income Generating Equity Securities based on the issuer’s income generation, objectives, policies, holdings, or similar criteria. Securities in which the Fund may invest include high yield, high risk securities which are rated below investment grade (commonly referred to as “junk” bonds), including the lowest rating categories, or are unrated but are determined by the Investment Manager to be of comparable quality, and are considered speculative and subject to certain risks that may be greater than those of higher rated securities. In seeking to enhance returns, the Fund may employ leverage to the extent permitted under the 1940 Act. There is no assurance the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.

Bexil Investment Trust is part of a fund complex which includes the Midas Funds and Foxby Corp.
