An interval fund is a type of investment company that periodically offers to repurchase its shares from shareholders. That is, the Fund periodically offers to buy back a stated portion of its shares from shareholders. Shareholders are not required to accept these offers and sell their shares back to the Fund. Legally, interval funds are classified as closed-end funds, but they are different from traditional closed-end funds in that:
- Their shares typically do not trade on the secondary market. Instead, their shares are subject to periodic repurchase offers by the fund at a price based on net asset value.
- They are permitted to continuously offer their shares at a priced based on the Fund’s net asset value.
An interval fund will make periodic repurchase offers to its shareholders, generally every three, six or twelve months, as disclosed in the fund’s prospectus and annual report. The interval fund also will periodically notify its shareholders of the upcoming repurchase dates. When the fund makes a repurchase offer to ts shareholders, it will specify a date by which shareholders must accept the repurchase offer. The actual repurchase will occur at a later, specified date.
