SEC form N-2 is a filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") that must be submitted by Closed-End Management Investment Companies to register under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and to offer their shares under the Securities Act of 1933. An exception for Small Business Investment Companies licensed by the Small Business Administration does exist. SEC Form N-2 is meant to provide investors with information concerning Closed-End Management Companies, useful in determining an investment company's attractiveness.

A Closed-End Management Company is an investment company that manages Closed-End Mutual Funds and sells a limited number of shares to investors on an exchange by way of an initial public offering.


Closed-End Funds

Closed-End Mutual Funds benefit from pooled fund investing and seek to obtain efficiencies through pooled management and operational economies of scale. Similar to other product offerings in the market, Closed-End Mutual Funds can be managed to a range of different investment objectives and strategies. They can offer income-focused strategies that make regular distributions from income-producing investments.

Closed-End Funds have many differences from Open-End Funds managed by Open-End Management Companies. Closed-End Funds do not offer a range of share classes. Closed-End Management Companies issue a fixed number of shares of Closed-End Funds to the market through initial public offerings on financial market exchanges. Closed-End Management companies do not allow for purchase and sale directly from the management company. Closed-End Fees are less complicated. Closed-End Management Companies usually do not partner with intermediaries and distributors for Closed-End Fund transactions. Therefore, they do not require sales loads or include distribution fee expenses.

Pricing comparisons for Closed-End Mutual Funds differ from Open-End Mutual Funds. Closed-End Management Companies calculate a daily accounting net asset value (NAV) at the end of each trading day. Since Closed-End Funds trade on exchanges, investors can buy and sell the funds at the exchange’s market value. As an exchange-traded Closed-End Fund, the product’s market value will differ from its accounting NAV. Closed-End Management Companies can partner with calculation agents to report an indicative NAV which helps funds to trade in closer proximity to their accounting NAV.

Form N-1 is filed on the SEC EDGAR system in HTML format. The SEC only accepts a simplified version of HTML, requiring the source documents to be converted using specialized SEC EDGAR software (as opposed to simply using the "Save as HTML" option in a word processor). Form N-1 also requires the filing entity to be registered with the SEC EDGAR system and have valid EDGAR filing codes.
