I have been in and out of NCV & NCZ (mostly in) for the past few years. Their holdings are generally corporate bonds & convertible securities. Premium to nav is reasonable, and the return has been phenomenal. These closed end funds pay a monthly dividend of close to 1% like clockwork (between 10-11%/yr depending on the share price you buy at). With the special year end dividend just announced, they will both return around 12% this year, with a bit of capital appreciation to boot. The risk I guess, is rising interest rates. Until I see signs that interest rates are set for a substantive increase and change to a rising trend, I think NCV & NCZ are safe.
