Secondary CEF Outlook and Q2 2023 Review

Join us for the Calamos Secondary CEF Outlook and Q2 2023 Review, providing market observations and expert analysis on key topics, including:

  • Overall continued improvements in financial markets in Q2 2023 supported positive CEF Price and NAV returns over the period.
  • Despite continued market volatility and no CEF IPO market that would otherwise lend pricing support, three out of seven of our closed-end funds traded above their respective NAVs as of 6/30/23.
  • All Calamos CEFs offered better price to NAV dynamics than their respective peer group averages at quarter-end, reflecting long-term confidence in our funds.
  • All Calamos CEFs offered better price and NAV distribution levels relative to their respective peer group averages.
  • Calamos CEFs offered price and NAV returns that were generally either in line or superior to their respective peer group averages for the period.
  • Four of seven Calamos CEFs offered better price to NAV dynamics on 6/30/23 than their respective averages since inception.
  • Lower-duration bonds, such as high yield and convertibles, that comprise a sizeable portion of our CEF portfolios, are typically less susceptible to the impacts of rising interest rates compared to longer-duration fixed income securities.
