Course description:   Get up to speed on closed-end funds by taking this deep dive training class. Closed-end funds have several unique properties that every investor needs to understand. Unlike mutual funds and ETFs, closed-end funds can borrow at a fund level and issue preferred stock. Closed-end funds also tend to trade a discount to their net asset value, unlike mutual funds and ETFs. As a "deep dive" class, this class consists of some introductory reading, but then mostly consists of you studying actual securities. We give you easy to use online tools that will allow you to quickly and easily study all closed-end funds currently on the market.

Prerequisites:   We do not assume you have previous knowledge of closed-end funds. A good basic understanding of how the stock market works is recommended. This course will benefit both beginning investors as well as experienced pros.

Recommended Way To Take The Class:    It is an online class, which gives you the flexibility to take the class however you can, whenever you can. Our suggestion is to try to find solid blocks of time of at least two or three hours where you can focus on the class. Better yet, set aside an entire day to taking the class, so that you really focus, and "dig in".
