Net Asset Value (NAV) represents the total value of all assets held by the Fund (minus its total liabilities), divided by the total number of common shares outstanding. The net asset value reflects the performance of the manager.  Market price (MP) is the price at which investors may purchase or sell shares of the Fund on the New York Stock exchange. Market price is determined in the open market by buyers and sellers, based on supply and demand. The Fund’s Market Price fluctuates throughout the day and may differ from its underlying NAV. Shares of the Fund may trade at a premium (higher than) or a discount (lower than) to NAV. The fund has no control over the stock price on the New York Stock Exchange. The difference between the market price and the NAV (Premium/Discount) is expressed as a percentage of NAV.

A closed-end fund is an investment company with a fixed number of shares that typically trades on a major stock exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), following an initial public offering (IPO). Once capital is raised through the IPO for the fund’s creation, the fund is “closed” and no additional new shares will be issued by the fund. Closed-end funds are actively managed according to the fund’s stated investment objective, and may be invested in stocks, bonds, derivatives, alternative investments, or a combination of securities.
