    • Bank loan funds (also known as senior loans or leveraged loans) have seen $5.6B of net inflows this year, with a nice chunk of that coming in the weeks since the election, writes Chris Dieterich at the WSJ.
    • It's no secret why: First, investors view bank loans as lower risk than junk bonds as they're ahead in the corporate structure in the event of a default. Maybe more importantly given the current environment, these loans are floating rate, making them popular in times of rising interest rates.
    • One measure of how popular they've become - narrowing discounts to NAV in closed-end funds. The Apollo Senior Floating Rate CEF (NYSE:AFT) could be had for a 15.1% discount to NAV in February, but just 5.1% today. Similar action is seen in others like the BlackRock Floating Rate Income Strategies Fund (NYSE:FRA) and the Nuveen Floating Rate Income Opportunity Fund (NYSE:JRO).

    • Relative Value Partners founder Maury Fertig names two floating-rate bond funds which should be able to adjust as rates rise, but find themselves trading at discounts to NAV: BlackRock Floating Rate Strategies (NYSE:FRA) and Pioneer Floating Rate Trust (NYSE:PHD).
    • Then there's two  short-duration funds which should be plenty stable thanks to their low duration, but also trade at sizable discounts: Eaton Vance Short Duration Diversified Income Fund (NYSE:EVG) - a 1.3 year duration, a yield of 8.2%, and selling at a 12% discount to NAV. Nuveen Mortgage Opportunity Trust (NYSE:JLS) - a 6% yield and selling at an 8% discount.
