      1. It is a closed end fund that (CEF) that operates as a business development business.

          1. I suspect you’re asking a question you already know the answer to, LI, but is the 300% asset coverage requirement for CEFs directly comparable to the BDC 150% asset coverage ratio???? I ask because I was just comparing the language in GLU-B to the language in this GECC issue and it mentions both a 300% number and a 200% number: for GLU=B:
            As provided in the 1940 Act and subject to certain exceptions, the Fund may issue debt and/or preferred shares with the condition that immediately after issuance the value of its total assets, less certain ordinary course liabilities, exceeds 300% of the amount of the debt outstanding and exceeds 200% of the sum of the amount of debt and preferred shares outstanding.”

            I don’t remember seeing any such differentiation in BDC language. So is either CEF number directly comparable to the BDC asset coverage ratio language of 150%? I am NOT asking a question I know the answer to… lol
