RYE, N.Y., July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gabelli Funds is pleased to present a video tracing the 50+ year history of the oldest, existing closed-end fund specializing in convertible securities.
Ronald Dinsmore founded the Bancroft Fund in 1971. Mr. Dinsmore was a pioneer in the closed-end fund business before passing away in 1996. Since inception, three generations of Dinsmores have led the Fund’s portfolio management team. The current management team includes Ronald’s son, Thomas Dinsmore, and grandson, James Dinsmore.
Why investors are attracted to closed-end funds, trading at discounts wider than average.
In a conversation with Laurissa Martire, Senior Vice President of Gabelli Funds, James Dinsmore talks about the potential buying opportunities of closed-end funds, distribution policies, and the enhanced compounding effect of reinvesting distributions when a fund is trading at a discount.
