    These four fund managers and 30 analysts figured out how to consistently beat the S&P 500

    DEEP DIVE If you manage $28 billion in client money, you may find it hard to beat benchmark indexes because of the sheer scale of investments you must buy.

    How to Pay 90 Cents for $1 Worth of Stocks Using Closed-End Funds

    One of the biggest draws of closed-end mutual funds is the fact that they can offer investors a chance to buy a basket of stocks or bonds at what's called a "discount to net asset value." That's where you purchase shares of a closed-end mutual fund and get, say, a dollar's worth of underlying securities for just 90 cents a share. "If you are thoughtful about when you buy and what you buy and you have patience, good things can happen," says Maury Fertig, co-founder of Relative Value Partners in Northbrook, Ill. Roughly 80% of closed-end mutual funds trade at a discount to NAV due to the unique way that these funds operate.
