RIV: Survived 2021 And Distribution Maintained For Another Year

In 2021, shareholders of RIV voted on whether or not they would like to convert to an open-ended fund. As RIV is still a CEF trading on the public market, suffice it to say, shareholders declined the conversion. That was a way for shareholders to get out at NAV if the fund had been trading at a deep discount. The fund regularly traded at a premium, so that almost solidified the conversion would be turned down.
