I was fooling around on the closed-end fund website (yeah, I know, how exciting!) and I came across this closed-end fund:
Adams Express Company (ADX) -
Adams Express Company is a diversified, closed-end management company. Its investment objectives are the preservation of capital, the attainment of a reasonable and dependable income from investments and an opportunity for capital appreciation consistent with the above.
The actual inception date of this fund is 10/1/1929
The chart seems to only go back as far as 1970, but, it certainly doesn't look like a good investment to me (up a whole 50% in 30 years)! Although, i can't see it from 1929
I wonder what is the oldest fund still in existence.
