Closed-end funds (CEFs) broadly advanced in the second quarter of 2014 on both market price and net asset value. Still, discounts for many closed-end funds exceed their long-term averages resulting in a wide array of undervalued funds across fixed income and equity categories. REITs are one CEF sector where the underlying fundamentals remain supportive. Portfolio managers Doug Bond and Jason Yablon will share their perspectives on finding opportunities in the broad CEF market and discuss how Cohen & Steers is positioning their REIT CEFs for the second half of 2014.
