These indexes were created and developed by Closed-End Fund Advisors, Inc. CEF Advisors launched these indexes in January 2017 based on December 31, 2016 data and began pricing on January 1, 2017.

The historical values above have not been verified by an independent third party. The historical performance data is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the actual performance of any investment product. No representation is being made that any investment will achieve performance similar to that shown. The index does not charge management fees or brokerage expenses, and no such fees or expenses were deducted from the historical performance shown. The index is unmanaged and an investor cannot invest directly in the index.

Performance information for the index is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the performance of any actual investment. The historical performance of the price and NAV of the index should not be taken as an indication of future performance, and no assurance can be given as to the index's value on any date. The data for the historical performance of the index was calculated on materially the same basis on which the performance of the index is now calculated. Discounts are the result of a closed-end fund’s market price deviating from its Net Asset Value (NAV).

In case any constituents of the index experience a liquidation, merger, open-ending or are no longer a closed-end fund, we will remove them as of their last day of existence. For mergers, if the merged fund is in the same sub-grouping inside CEFdata.com, then we will replace the merged fund with it's replacement in equal dollar terms. If a fund is liquidated, open-ended, etc, we will remove the fund and its allocation from the index. In this case, for example. If a fund was 2% of the index then future pricing would assume a full allocation was 98%. The 2% is adsorbed on a pro-rata basis by all surviving funds.
