Annual Awards for Closed-End Funds, ETF's & Analysts



Within the context of the Annual Capital Link Forum on Closed-End Funds and Global ETFs, we also organize annually two categories of Awards.

The first category is the Closed-End Funds and the ETP/ETF Awards, aimed to identify and recognize those fund sponsors and executives who consistently apply high standards of financial disclosure, investor and shareholder relations and product innovation. The Awards are based on nominations by a committee of analysts and industry specialists who actively follow CEFs and ETP/ETFs. There are separate Nominating Committees for CEFs and ETFs.

The second category of Awards is the CEF & ETP/ETF Analyst Awards aimed to recognize those firms and individual analysts who contribute the most to the development of the CEF and ETP/ETF sectors with their research work. The Awards are based on nominations by a committee of industry participants from CEFs and ETFs. There are separate Nominating Committees for CEFs and ETFs.

Capital Link is not part of any Nominating Committee.

The Awards are presented during the luncheon of the Annual Capital Link Forum on Closed-End Funds and Global ETFs which is organized every April in New York City.

The Awards receive wide recognition and publicity.
