Closed-End Funds

CEF

Nuveen Global Income Opportunities Fund (NYSE: JGG)

Objective

The fund primarily seeks to provide a high level of current income and gains. The fund secondarily seeks capital preservation.

Investment Strategy

The fund is a multi-sector global bond strategy that invests primarily in sovereign, government-related, corporate and other types of debt from developed and emerging markets around the world. The fund invests at least 80% of its managed assets in global debt securities, including global sovereign and government-related debt, corporate debt and structured debt, such as mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities. The fund’s securities are primarily rated investment grade by S&P, Moody’s or Fitch at the time of purchase (or unrated but deemed to be of comparable quality by the fund’s management). However, up to 30% of the fund’s managed assets may be securities rated below investment grade (or unrated but deemed to be of comparable quality by the fund’s management). The fund may not invest in debt rated below CCC. The fund will use futures, forwards and other derivatives to create or reduce exposure to countries, sectors, currencies, and interest rates in seeking to enhance total returns and/or manage risk. The fund uses leverage.

Highlights

  • Exposure to the expanded opportunity set and diversification potential of global bonds
  • Broad flexible mandate that invests beyond sovereign debt, including corporate bonds, mortgage-backed securities and up to 30% in below-investment-grade securities
  • Active, opportunistic approach that adjusts the portfolio’s country, currency, sector and interest rate positioning to suit current market conditions
  • Attractive income potential

RISKS
The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. Investors should carefully review and consider the risks listed below before investing.

Investment Risk: The possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest.Price Risk: Shares of closed-end investment companies like the Fund frequently trade at a discount to their NAV. Your common shares at any point in time may be worth less than your original investment, even after taking into account the reinvestment of Fund dividends and distributions.Leverage Risk: Each Fund’s use of leverage creates the possibility of higher volatility for the Fund’s per share NAV, market price, distributions and returns. There is no assurance that a Fund’s leveraging strategy will be successful.Tax Risk: The Fund’s investment program and the tax treatment of Fund distributions may be affected by IRS interpretations of the Internal Revenue Code and future changes in tax laws and regulations, including changes resulting from the “sunset” provisions that may apply to the favorable tax treatment of tax-advantaged dividends. There can be no assurance as to the percentage of a Fund’s distributions that will qualify as tax-advantaged dividends.Issuer Credit Risk: This is the risk that a security in a Fund's portfolio will fail to make dividend or interest payments when due.Below-Investment Grade Risk: Investments in securities below investment grade quality are predominantly speculative and subject to greater volatility and risk of default.Call Risk or Prepayment Risk: Issuers may exercise their option to prepay principal earlier than scheduled, forcing the Fund to reinvest in lower-yielding securities. Derivatives Strategy Risk: Derivative securities, such as calls, puts, warrants, swaps and forwards, carry risks different from, and possibly greater than, the risks associated with the underlying investments.Interest Rate Risk: Fixed-income securities such as bonds, preferred, convertible and other debt securities will decline in value if market interest rates rise. Reinvestment Risk: If market interest rates decline, income earned from the Fund’s portfolio may be reinvested at rates below that of the original bond that generated the income. Counterparty Risk: To the extent that a Fund’s derivative investments are purchased or sold in over-the-counter transactions, the Fund will be exposed to the risk that counterparties to these transactions will be unable to meet their obligations.Currency Risk: Changes in exchange rates will affect the value of a Fund’s investments.Forward Currency Contracts Risk: Forward currency contracts are not standardized and are substantially unregulated. Principals are not required to continue to make markets in the securities or currencies they trade and these markets can experience periods of illiquidity, sometimes of significant duration. In addition, trading forward currency contracts can have the effect of financial leverage by creating additional investment exposure. Interest Rate Swaps Risk: In interest rate swap transactions, there is a risk that yields will move in the direction opposite to the direction anticipated by the fund, which would cause the fund to make payments to its counterparty in the transaction that could adversely affect the fund's performance.Non-U.S. Securities Risk: Investments in non-U.S securities involve special risks not typically associated with domestic investments including currency risk and adverse political, social and economic development. These risks often are magnified in emerging markets.
NOTES

** The premium/discount is calculated as (most recent price/most recent NAV) -1.

†† Distribution rates represent the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the most recent market price and NAV. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation.

Managed Distribution Policy

This fund has adopted a Managed Distribution Policy, designed to provide attractive, regular distributions throughout the course of the year. Under this policy, the fund seeks to maintain a stable regular distribution amount that, over the long term, matches the fund’s total distributions paid, to its total return. You should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate. Regular distributions are expected to be comprised of net income from portfolio investments, as well as net realized capital gains from the portfolio and, if necessary, a return of capital (representing, in some cases, net unrealized capital gains).

If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time. These estimates may not match the final tax characterization (for the full year’s distributions) contained in shareholders’ 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year.
