Zweig Fund Inc is a closed-end fund. The Fund employs a Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP) approach, investing in large capitalization companies, placing emphasis on the current income generated by the portfolio's equity securities. Security selection is driven by a top-down approach using econometric analysis of each sector, followed by a review of securities at an industry group level. The Fund seeks to maintain a consistent distribution level that may be paid in part or in full from net investment income and realized capital gains, or a combination thereof. If the Fund's aggregate net investment income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level, the difference will be distributed from the Fund's assets and will constitute a return of the shareholder's capital. The Fund’s investment manager is Zweig Advisers LLC. A return of capital is not taxable; rather it reduces a shareholder's tax basis in his or her shares of the Fund.
