BNY Mellon High Yield Strategies Fund (NYSE: DHF) today announced a monthly cash distribution of $0.0185 per share of beneficial interest, payable on December 21, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 7, 2021. The ex-dividend date is December 6, 2021. The $0.0185 per share investment income dividend represents a decrease of $0.003 from the previously declared monthly net investment income dividend of $0.0215 per share.
The reduction primarily reflects the lower interest rate environment that has existed in the market for the reinvestment of the proceeds received by the Fund from coupon payments and from called, sold and/or matured portfolio holdings in additional fixed income municipal obligations.
