Nuveen Updates Management on Eight Closed-End Funds


Eight Nuveen closed-end funds sub-advised by Symphony Asset Management announced portfolio management updates as part of an orderly leadership succession in which Gunther Stein has stepped down as Chief Investment Officer and Chief Executive Officer at Symphony Asset Management.

Symphony’s mandate for each fund will continue to be managed by the Symphony portfolio managers listed below who currently have investment management responsibility for these strategies. Mr. Stein, who has ceased all portfolio management activities but will remain at Symphony as Chairman through year end 2018, stressed that the investment philosophy, approach and day-to-day management of each mandate will remain unchanged.

“Symphony will continue to manage these mandates as we always have, through a team-based approach to rigorous fundamental research, valuation and risk analysis that we believe identifies value across the capital structure and delivers desirable portfolio outcomes,” said Mr. Stein. “The PMs now assuming sole responsibility for these funds have worked closely with me for over 15 years in driving all portfolio decisions.”
