Chuck Jaffe, a well known financial columnist for MarketWatch, interviewed Jerry Paul yesterday on the topic of opportunities in closed end funds. The article summarizing the interview is available at http://www.marketwatch.com/story/be-open-to-closed-end-bond-funds-2009-10-21?siteid=yhoof.
The article does a very good job of outlining the fundamental premise we utilize in investing in closed end funds: this is an underfollowed segment of the financial markets that may give rise to unique opportunities for those who spend the appropriate time researching potential investments and understanding the potential risks.
