Closed-End Fund, Turnover, Net Asset Value, Discount


This paper seeks to further investigate the quandary of closed-end fund discounts known as the four-piece puzzle.

Using a fixed effects model, the effects of turnover, three-year-beta, price/book, median market capitalization, expenses and income were measured in this study.
