About Adams Express

Adams Express is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected closed-end funds.  It is one of only five closed-end funds that continues to operate since 1929.  Our longevity is directly tied to our abilities to invest, protect, and grow our assets.  Most years, our approach has allowed us to out-perform our peer groups’ funds as well as the major indexes.  In fact, we have delivered 79 years of uninterrupted dividends to shareholders.

Our success has been built on a time-tested philosophy that emphasizes in-depth research, objective analysis, and a steady focus on long-term growth.  This approach coupled with the benefits of being organized as a closed-end fund, is what allows the Fund to grow our capital base and distribute dividends to shareholders year after year.

More importantly, our fund is here to help you with your future.  For 85 years, our focus has been on making sure shareholders’ dollars go toward growing their investment in the Fund, so they can reach their own personal financial goals.
