Closed-End Fund Strategies Team

  • The team's strategies employ a disciplined, quantitative, model-driven approach, which is balanced with thorough qualitative research to assess the relative value of equity closed-end funds (CEFs).
  • The team incorporates fundamental analysis of future investment potential, management quality, and absolute and relative attractiveness of each fund's current market price relative to net asset value.
  • Sector and geographic allocations are managed to comply with individual client considerations and are tracked on a daily basis.
  • A clearly defined sell discipline is used.
  • The experienced portfolio management team has been a dominant CEF investor for more than 20 years.
