Potential benefits
  • Broad market opportunity: Equity portfolio provides the opportunity to participate in Dow Jones Industrial Average returns
  • Reduced volatility: Sells (“writes”) call options on a portion of the equity portfolio, reducing the Fund’s return volatility and downside risk (but also reducing some of its capital appreciation potential)
  • Tax-advantaged distributions: Offers the potential for regular distributions from qualified dividend income, long-term capital gains and return of capital

Fund description

The Fund is designed to offer regular distributions through a strategy that seeks attractive total return with less volatility than the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA or “Dow30”) by investing in an equity portfolio that seeks to substantially replicate the price movements of the DJIA, as well as selling call options on 35%-75% of the notional value of the Fund's equity portfolio (with a 55% long-term target) in an effort to enhance the Fund's risk-adjusted returns.

For term definitions and index descriptions, please access the glossary in the footer.

Fund basics

Capital structure

Common shares

Annual expense ratios

Fund fees and expenses are presented as a percentage of both common shareholder capital and total fund investment capital. The first column portrays the costs directly and indirectly borne by common shareholders. The second column portrays the costs borne by the Fund on its total investment capital, which includes common assets as well as assets attributable to the Fund's issuance of senior securities (e.g. preferred shares and debt). This column enables a common shareholder to better understand how fund expenses impact portfolio investment returns. Interest expenses from leverage represent costs associated with the Fund's financing activities, which are distinct from the costs associated with the Fund's underlying core operations. Certain leveraging instruments including repurchase agreements (repos) are sometimes more efficient forms of leverage, but when used, the costs are difficult to accurately disaggregate and are not shown here.

Expense ratios are calculated using the prior 12 months of expense data as of the previous month-end. Annualized leverage financing expense is included if the Fund was leveraged as of the previous month end.

Share price and NAV history

Premium/discount history and Share price and NAV history data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results.

Hypothetical growth of 10K

The table illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the date indicated. Original Investment & Cumulative Distributions is the original investment value added to the cash flow received from distributions. The total returns are not adjusted to reflect the effects of taxation and assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

Calendar year returns

Average annual total returns

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the data shown. NAV returns are net of fund expenses, and assume reinvestment of distributions.

Distributions

Key information regarding distributions

Total distributions per share

Managed Distribution: Historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains and return of capital. 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 which may be viewed at nuveen.com/CEFdistributions. 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. You should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate.

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

A word on risk

Investment, Market, and Price Risk: Closed-end fund shares are subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest. Common shares frequently trade at a discount to their NAV. At any point in time, your common shares may be worth less than you paid, even after considering the reinvestment of fund distributions.

Common Stock Risk: Common stock returns often have experienced significant volatility.

Call Option Risk: The value of call options sold (written) by the fund will fluctuate. The fund may not participate in any appreciation of its equity portfolio as fully as it would if the fund did not sell call options. In addition, the fund will continue to bear the risk of declines in the value of its equity portfolio.

Index Call Option Risk: Because index options are settled in cash, sellers of index call options, such as the fund, cannot provide in advance for its potential settlement obligations by acquiring and holding the underlying securities

Tax Risk: The tax treatment of fund distributions may be affected by future changes in tax laws and regulations or their interpretation by the Internal Revenue Service or state tax authorities.

Shares of closed-end funds are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of principal invested. Closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value (NAV).

An investment in this fund presents a number of risks and is not suitable for all investors. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing.
