Closed-end funds are tied to a host of different asset classes.

That's the assessment from Bill Meyers, senior managing director at Nuveen.

"If you name an asset class, there's a closed-end fund that has it in there," he said. "When people think of income - it might be primarily bonds -- but there's a whole host of other asset classes that are embraced by closed-end funds that generate strong levels in cash flows."

Some of those other asset classes, according to Meyers, include: Master Limited Partnerships and Real Estate Investment Trusts.
