Closed-End Bond Funds, Friend Or Foe?
8 months ago

Hi Alexis,

You ask a good question. I just realized something. I had a box in the article explaining a closed end fund and it did not get published.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A closed-end bond fund has a manager who is paid a fee to oversee the investments.

Unlike a mutual fund that will redeem your shares, closed end funds trade like stocks. When you buy or sell, your broker facilitates a trade with another investor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A closed end fund has a fixed number of shares. It trades like a stock as the manager is buying and selling bonds all the time and determining the dividend payout.

Hope this helps,

Dennis Miller
