Trusted by Investors for Generations

Adams Funds manages two of the country's oldest closed-end equity funds -- Adams Diversified Equity Fund, Inc. (ADX), previously known as The Adams Express Company, and Adams Natural Resources Fund, Inc. (PEO), previously known as Petroleum & Resources Corporation. As closed-end funds, shares of each Fund's common stock are listed and trade on the New York Stock Exchange.

The three pillars that characterize our value proposition for investors – experience, insight and discipline – provide the foundation of our investment approach as we strive to generate long-term capital appreciation.


For over 85 years, both Funds have been internally managed and have generated consistent capital growth and income through portfolio performance, dividends, and distributions.


The Funds are managed by an experienced investment team employing a disciplined approach to identify opportunities and carefully manage risk.


Our long-term investment approach has allowed our Funds to deliver uninterrupted dividends for over 80 years, with a commitment to meet or exceed an annual distribution rate of at least 6%.
