Part II of the study contains a theoretical and empirical analysis on the special equity asset class of closed-end funds. The analysis contributes to the pricing literature on closed-end funds in that we develop a valuation model that captures the distinct pricing characteristics of closed-end fund market shares. Given the pricing model we are able to perform a general closed-end fund analysis and derive insights into two potential applications of the model valuable for investment decisions.
