Closed-end municipal bond funds bucked an otherwise dismal December and an equity fund focused on Mexico managed decent gains, even as other bond and equity counterparts took a beating amid the market rout.

Closed-end equity funds were hit even harder, with a 6.13% decline in net asset value and an 8.53% slide on a market basis.
