Dual Purpose Fund
A closed-end fund that offers two types of shares: income shares and capital shares. Income shares offer holders a portion of the fixed return on the fund's portfolio, and attract low-risk investors. Capital shares do not offer a portion on the fixed return, but instead offer holders a portion of the returns on stocks or similar investments, attracting medium- or high-risk investors. An advantage to the dual purpose fund is that it offers shareholders a choice as to which type of investment they would like to make.
