Strategy Summary

Karpus Investment Management has been an active investment manager since the firm’s inception in 1986. With the focus of managing risk, our Investment Committee formulates our economic overview by reviewing the economic cycle, analyzing historical valuations, analyzing growth and policy prospects, and analyzing liquidity and economic momentum.

Once an overview is established, a target investment matrix is then created. Sector weightings, yield curve positioning, and duration targets are guided by this research. Analysts continuously conduct a security-by-security analysis to identify and capitalize on market inefficiencies.

Our focus is on the advantages offered by purchasing closed-end funds at a discount. However, we also utilize index-based securities if closed-end funds are not trading at what we believe are attractive discounts. Once purchased, holdings are analyzed on an ongoing basis. Karpus continuously monitors key investment variables, as well as corporate governance attributes to assess whether shareholder value is being maximized.
