Overview 


Two things typically attract investors to closed-end funds: the potential for attractive income and the opportunity to buy shares at a discount to a fund’s underlying holdings. These factors remain a key part of the value proposition given the sizeable income advantage and wider-than-average discounts available in today’s closed-end-fund market. However, it is critical that investors look deeper when evaluating opportunities, as history shows that discounts and yields have done a poor job of indicating forward returns.
