  • Markets behave as efficiently as market participants account for them, which can lead to discrepancies and opportunity
  • Markets trade efficiently with regards to price but not necessarily value
  • Over time inefficiencies tend to reduce which can present attractive exit points


  • Buy securities that are trading at levels that represent a discount to their historic net asset value (NAV) or multiple.
  • Purchase securities that are mispriced due to short-term negative events or presence in out-of-favor sectors.
  • Sell securities in sectors that have appreciated ahead of their historical means.
  • Invest in closed-end funds that provide dividend payouts during the holding period.


A broad scope of market factors are considered, and may vary from time to time, depending upon the portfolio's current composition. The team seeks to:

  • Establish a general market outlook.
  • Evaluate and constantly monitor all closed-end fund market segments.
  • Assess the capital markets, geo-political and macroeconomic environment.
  • Identify closed-end fund classifications that display significant pricing inefficiencies.


Once a thesis is established, the in-house research team evaluates targeted ideas, based on the critical characteristics, including:

  • Liquidity
  • Underlying securities
  • Historical performance
  • Fund management
  • Gap between share price and NAV
  • Source of discount
  • Leverage percentage
  • Expenses/fees
  • Tax considerations
  • Dividends & Dividend date
  • Comparables with ETFs and open-end funds


The team trades across all sectors and market capitalizations

  • Portfolio typically contains 40 to 80 total long positions in CEFs, ETFs, ADRs and Equity & debt instruments.
  • Average time horizon is less than one year.
  • Actively managed averaging over 300 trades per month.
  • Utilize cash as a tactical allocation.
  • CIO controls final decisions regarding significant position changes and/or portfolio rebalancing.
