CEFX S-Network Composite Closed-End Fund Index

The Index currently includes about 140 closed-end funds that invest in taxable investment grade fixed-income securities, taxable high yield fixed-income securities, and other closed end funds that utilize an equity option writing (selling) strategy. The index selects from a starting universe of 200+ fixed income and option income closed-end funds, and then eliminates certain funds based on size and trading volume. The Index also eliminates any funds with a total expense ratio > 2% and funds trading at premiums > 20%. The Index weights each closed end fund using each fund's net assets, but it adjusts the weighting based on how much the fund is trading at a premium or discount to net asset value.
