CLOSED-END FUNDS

Closed-end funds offer excellent income potential compared to conventional mutual funds, ETFs, and dividend stocks but come with a number of complexities. Closed-end funds are actively managed by a fund manager, often use financial leverage to generate more income, can invest in various assets (e.g. stocks, bonds), and trade at a discount or premium to the market value of their assets. Please see our “Guide to Investing in Closed-End Funds” for more information.
