ETRACS Monthly Pay 1.5X Leveraged Closed-End Fund Index ETN
What is CEFD?
The ETRACS Monthly Pay 1.5X Leveraged Closed-End Fund Index ETN is designed to provide 1.5 times leveraged long exposure to the compounded quarterly performance of the S-Network Composite Closed-End Fund Index, less financing costs and tracking fees, and may pay a variable monthly coupon linked to the leveraged cash distributions associated with the underlying Closed-End Fund index constituents. The S-Network Composite Closed-End Fund Index is a mutual fund index designed to serve as a benchmark for closed-end funds listed in the U.S. that are principally engaged in asset management processes designed to produce taxable annual yield. The Index is a price return index (i.e., the reinvestment of dividends is not reflected in the value of the Index). The Index contains closed-end funds selected from three main taxable annual yield sectors: Investment Grade Fixed Income Closed-End Funds, High-Yield Fixed Income Closed-End Funds, and Option Income Closed-End Funds.
