CEF Advisors' 35 CEF/BDC Indexes: Our indexes cover the entire closed-end fund (CEF) and business development company (BDC) universe. The indexes cover both bond and equity sector indexes as well as diversified portfolio objective indexes. The indexes are priced daily from our internally collected CEFData.com research system and database launched in 2012. Data will be available on the indexes for additional benchmarking purposes including weighted discount, yield, leverage, duration, beta and other metrics for the underlying constituent funds. The indexes will be rebalanced quarterly. The indexes were developed to help us monitor our client portfolios as well as help our research/data clients and peers better benchmark themselves.

The firm's index project can be monitored via: www.cefdata.com/index. We offer a performance table and a data table webpage summarizing each index.
