About the Index

All funds in index must be monthly or quarterly paying funds that have a 6%+ with 65%+ of the yield paid February to October (seeking to avoid large year-end dividends to cause inclusion in the index, and not counting special dividends in this calculation for yield). (1) 15% allocation to all the funds in the Hybrid / Balanced Index, equal weight (2) 15% allocation to all the funds in the Multisector Bond Index, equal weight. (3) 14% allocation to funds in the Equity Income Index (non MLP/Non REIT) 1/3 of funds from the index (after MLP/REIT removal) ranked by lowest daily NAV correlation over the past 6 months to the Equity Income Index NAV, equal weight. (4) 14% allocation to funds in the Taxable Bond and BDC Index (non BDC or Multisector funds) 1/4 of the funds from the index (after BDC / Multisector fund removal) ranked by lowest daily NAV correlation in the past 6 months to the Taxable Bond and BDC Index's NAV, equal weight. (5) 10% allocation to the 10 most liquid as measured by 90 day average trade volume for the BDCs in our BDC index while allowing only 1 BDC per Fund Sponsor, equal weight. (6) 10% allocation to the 10 most liquid as measured by 90 day average trade volume for the MLP funds in our MLP index while only allowing 1 MLP fund per Fund Sponsor, equal weight.

(8) 8% allocation to any non-BDC CEFs that report a quarterly NAV, equal weight. (9) 6% allocation to the 5 Preferred Equity funds in our Preferred Equity Index with the lowest 6 month NAV correlation to the Preferred Equity Index's NAV while allowing only 1 fund per Fund Sponsor (lowest correlation), equal weight. The index constituents will be rebalanced each quarter.

DISCLOSURES:

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. CEF Advisors does not guarantee the accuracy or the completeness of the index or any data included therein and CEF Advisors shall have no liability for any errors, omissions or interruptions therein. CEF Advisors makes no warranty, express or implied, as to results to be obtained by any person or entity from the use of the index or any data included therein. CEF Advisors makes no express or implied warranties, and expressly disclaims all warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use with respect to the index or any data included therein. Without limiting any of the foregoing, in no event shall CEF Advisors have any liability for any special, punitive, direct, indirect or consequential damages (including lost profits) arising out of matters relating to the use of the index, even if notified of the possibility of such damages.

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.
