Investopedia explains 'Closed-End Management Company'


Closed-end management companies are not required to repurchase the shares that they have sold to investors. Investors in these types of funds sell their own shares at the market price of the security, even if that price is significantly below the net asset value of the portfolio that their shares represent. It is common for the price of closed-end funds to be above or below the actual NAV.
