Board Oversight of Closed-End Funds: Leverage, Discounts, Insurgents and Other Topics
Forum Webinar
Thursday, April 18, 2019
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
The closed-end fund market has seen a significant rebound since its low in 2008. Many of the new funds represent the first or second closed-end fund launched by a sponsor with an already thriving open-end mutual fund business, or perhaps represents a new type of closed-end fund that uses an alternative vehicle or fee structure. This often results in fund directors and management having to think about issues unique to closed-end funds for the first time (or for the first time in quite some time) or think about those issues through a slightly different lens.  
Nathan Briggs, a partner at Ropes & Gray, will discuss several of the most important issues for directors to consider that are unique to overseeing closed-end funds, including, among others, (a) a closed-end fund’s use of leverage, (b) monitoring a closed-end fund’s discount, and (c) dealing with activist shareholders and insurgent directors.
This webinar will be broadcast live from 2:00 to 3:00 Eastern Time on Thursday, April 18, 2019.
