Barron’s Closed-End Fund Data

Each quarter, Barron’s Online (www.barrons.com) reports statistics on publicly-traded closed-end funds. The statistics reported include the discount (or premium) of the market price from the fund’s net asset value (NAV), the 52-week average discount or premium, the fund’s objective, and various return measurements, etc. Highland Global then calculates the discount range, average, median, and standard deviation and reports these figures based on metrics such as the total data population, beta ranges, fund objectives, etc.
