The Mexico Fund, Inc. (MXF) announced today that, at its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, stockholders (i) re-elected Claudio X. Gonzalez, Edward P. Djerejian and Alberto Osorio as Class II Directors of the Fund for a three-year term expiring in 2022 and (ii) soundly rejected the stockholder’s proposal to terminate the Investment Advisory Agreement between Impulsora del Fondo México, S.C. and the Fund, such proposal receiving only 1,979,870 shares voted “For,” equivalent to approximately 13% of the Fund’s outstanding shares.
Specifically, Impulsora will waive fees and/or reimburse expenses (excluding amounts payable via the performance adjustment factor under the Fund’s Investment Advisory Agreement, taxes, interest, brokerage fees and any non-recurring expenses) to the extent necessary so that the Fund’s ordinary annual expense ratio does not exceed 1.50% beginning on April 1, 2019 through October 31, 2020, so long as Fund net assets remain greater than $200 million. In addition, as part of the foregoing discussions, the Board emphasized the superior investment performance of the Fund relative to its benchmark index during the last one-, three-, five- and ten-year periods, as of February 28, 2019, as shown in the table below.

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. Municipal debt CEFs posted an average return of 1.1% in December, even as closed-end bond funds as a whole saw declines of 0.37% in net asset value and 1.5% on a market basis, according to Lipper's FundMarket Insight Report. 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.
