      some other CEFs you find attractive right now? Lee: Another one is Templeton Global Income , ticker [TICKER: GIM ] GIM and this one is the closed-end fund version of the [TICKER:TPINX] Templeton Global Bond mutual fund, ticker TPINX.

The mutual fund has an expense ratio of 86 basis points, whereas the closed-end fund, ticker GIM has an expense ratio of only 73 basis points. You're getting the same strategy at a discount and with a lower expense
