About the index

The ISE High Income™ Index (the “Index”) measures the performance of 30 U.S. closed-end funds, as selected and ranked by the Index sponsor in accordance with the Index methodology.  To be eligible for inclusion in the Index, a fund must be domiciled in the U.S., be listed on a U.S. securities exchange and satisfy minimum market capitalization and liquidity requirements.  Each eligible fund is ranked in descending order in accordance with a multivariate ranking scheme based on three factors: yield; share price discount from net asset value; and trading liquidity, with the 30 highest-ranking funds included in the Index.  The Index constituent weights are determined by a modified linear weighting methodology that results in higher-ranked funds receiving a greater Index weighting than lower-ranked funds.  The Index is rebalanced yearly to ensure that Index constituents do not exceed Index target weightings. The Index is a price return index (i.e., the reinvestment of dividends is not reflected in the Index; rather, any cash distributions on the Index constituents are reflected in the variable monthly coupon that may be paid to investors of CEFL). The Index was created on April 11, 2013 and, therefore, has no performance history prior to that date.
