Closed-end Fund

A type of investment company that does not continuously offer its shares for sale but instead sells a fixed number of shares at one time. After its initial public offering, the fund typically trades on a market, such as the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ Stock Market. Legally, they are known as a "closed-end company."
