Definition of "Dual Purpose Investment Company"

An exchange listed closed-end investment company that issues two classes of shares--income and capital. The income (preferred) shareholders receive all the income (dividends and interest) from the portfolio, and the capital (common) shareholders receive all the capital gains. As dual purpose funds are not highly traded, many analysts do not follow them closely.
