Gabelli Funds Presents Back to the Future with Closed-End Funds

A video accompanying this announcement is available at

RYE, N.Y., June 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gabelli Funds is pleased to present an entertaining and educational video tracing the incredible growth of The Closed-End Fund industry over the last four decades.

Though they are often overlooked, Closed-End Funds are one of the oldest forms of pooled investment vehicles, even predating more widely recognizable mutual funds and ETFs. The video highlights many closed-end funds that survived the Great Depression and continue to trade today on the New York Stock Exchange, offering investors access to extraordinary long-term investment results.

The video features how closed end funds have grown from approximately $9 billion in only a few dozen funds in 1985 to the present figure of $251 billion across 441 funds.

David Schachter, Senior Vice President at Gabelli Funds, takes you from newspapers to the internet and reviews the role Gabelli Closed-End Funds have played in the remarkable evolution of Closed-End Funds.
