About the Index

The RiverNorth Municipal Closed-End Fund ("CEF") Index is an equal weighted index of 50 national municipal closed-end funds. The rules-based index has two objectives: 1) to ensure the index constituents reflect the national municipal closed-end fund market as a whole, and, 2) to ensure the index constituents have trading liquidity. To accomplish these objectives, the RiverNorth methodology selects the 50 most liquid national municipal closed-end funds and equally weights each security in the index. The index is rebalanced annually on June 30th.
