A listed investment company (LIC) is an investment listed on a stock exchange that is incorporated as a company. LICs operate similarly to a managed fund as they have a manager who operates its investments. An LIC does not usually issue or cancel shares in the fund to mirror demand, i.e. they are close-ended. As a LIC is a company, investors in the LIC receive dividends.
