Why Closed-End Funds?

There are approximately 500 U.S. listed closed-end funds that trade on the stock exchange, just like ETFs. While CEFs have traditionally been associated with income, they have the potential to play multiple roles in portfolios.

Key Closed-End Fund Attributes



Closed-End Funds are just that — closed. This stable asset base, without constant inflows and outflows, generally allows the portfolio managers to take a long-term view on the potential merits of each investment.



The Closed-End Fund structure is advantageous for investing in unique and specialized areas of the market, including;

  • Venture Capital
  • PIPEs
  • Private Placements
  • CLOs
  • Direct Private Equity
  • Alternative Credit
  • Real Estate



Closed-end funds have the ability to efficiently deploy leverage to potentially enhance income levels and boost performance for shareholders.

Enhance Portfolios by Adding Closed-End Funds

Closed-End Funds are offered with a wide array of investment styles and focus. No matter what segment of the market you are looking to gain exposure to, there may be a CEF for your portfolio to complement ETFs, Mutual Funds and other investments.
