Taxable Income : Global Funds

About Global Debt Funds

Global fixed-income securities are issued by a broad range of companies and governments, and can be diversified across countries, regions, economic conditions and credit ratings. Some fixed-income securities are rated for credit worthiness and payment default risk by independent ratings services such as Standard & Poors and Moody's Investors Service. Sometimes a fund can gain exposure to the returns of global debt investments more efficiently by investing in derivative securities instead of directly buying non-U.S. bonds.

Investor Profile

Are these CEFs right for you?

The features and investment objectives of these funds might be especially appealing to investors seeking:
  • Attractive regular distributions from a portfolio of direct and indirect investments in government debt securities issued by countries around the world;
  • Exposure to non-U.S. government interest rate changes; exposure to strategies intended to benefit from a weakening U.S. Dollar vs. other currencies;
  • Greater portfolio diversification; and
  • Fixed-income investment alternatives.

What are potential risks?

  • Investments in securities of non-US issuers involve additional risks, including adverse political, currency, social, or regulatory developments in a country, lack of liquidity or differing legal and accounting standards.
  • In addition, Nuveen global debt funds use derivative investments to gain some of their global debt exposure, the use of which can lead to losses due to adverse movements in the price or value of the underlying assets.
