DISTRIBUTION POLICY

 

The New Ireland Fund, Inc has implemented a Managed Distribution Policy to provide shareholders with a stable quarterly distribution out of current income, supplemented by realized capital gains and, to the extent necessary, paid-in capital. The Board has determined that the current annual rate for fiscal year 2017 will be 8% of the October 31, 2016 fiscal year end NAV. The distribution rate is not representative of dividend yield or the total return of the Fund.
