Each funds’ Board has recommended that shareholders vote in favor of implementing the new investment policies in order to help provide the fund’s management:

  • Enhanced ability to meet investment objectives while maintaining the quality orientation of the fund's investment portfolio.
  • Increased flexibility in diversifying portfolio risks and managing duration to help sustain and build net asset value.
  • Improved secondary market competitiveness that may lead to a higher relative market price and/or stronger premium/discount performance.

Investors who have not mailed in their proxy and wish to vote via the Internet may download their fund's proxy statement and vote their proxy online. To vote over the internet, investors should go to www.proxyweb.com if they received their proxy materials directly from Nuveen. Investors who received their proxy material from their Financial Advisor should go to www.proxyvote.com. In both cases, investors should enter the control number provided with their Notice of Annual/Special Meeting of Shareholders, and follow the proxy voting instructions. Additionally, shareholders who wish to vote by telephone should call the toll-free number located on their proxy card and follow the recorded instructions, using their proxy card as a guide.
