Closed-end funds

Unlock greater cash flow potential with closed-end funds

Explore closed-end funds to enhance income potential and diversification

Closed-end funds are professionally managed and seek to provide attractive, steady distributions to shareholders. Their unique structure enables them to tap into parts of the market that might not otherwise be accessible to you, such as alternatives, and use leverage to potentially boost income over the long-term.

Nuveen is the #1 closed-end fund provider by AUM.1 Closed-end funds may offer the potential for higher regular income than other types of investment products because of their distinct structure and ability to use leverage.2

1Nuveen, Morningstar Direct as of 31 Mar 2024. Based on total managed assets of closed-end funds.

2Leverage typically magnifies the total return of a fund’s portfolio, whether that return is positive or negative, and creates an opportunity for increased common share net income as well as higher volatility of net asset value, market price, and distributions. There is no assurance that a fund’s leveraging strategy will be successful.

3Closed-end Fund distribution sources may include net investment income, realized gains and/or return of capital. If a fund’s distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a 19a notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time. An electronic copy of this notice is also posted under distribution (19A) notices at The amounts and sources of distributions reported in 19(a) Notices are only estimates and should not be relied upon for tax reporting purposes.

Visit the CEF resources page and view the distribution (19a) notices section for more information on fund performance and current estimates of the funds' distribution components.
