Displays a list of publicly traded Closed End Funds (CEFs), with information about Yield, Symbol Price Performance, NAV Premium/Discount, and Classification details.
CEFs are a type of investment company whose structure is based on issuing a fixed number of shares (typically at their IPO) which are not redeemable from the fund. CEFs pass through most of their capital gains and investment income in the form of regular cash Dividends. Unlike Open Ended funds, new shares in a CEF are not created by managers to meet demand from investors, rather the shares can only be purchased and sold in the open market. Capital does not flow into or out of the funds when shareholders buy or sell shares. CEFs are generally listed on recognized stock exchanges, where the price per share is determined by the market, and is usually different from the underlying net asset value or NAV per share of the investments held by the fund. The market price will typically be at either a discount or premium to NAV, based on such factors as issuance of additional debt, perceived investment manager performance, etc. NAV is equal to Fund Assets minus Fund Liabilities, divided by number of Shares Outstanding.
