Fund description

The Fund seeks total return through income exempt from regular federal income taxes and capital appreciation. The Fund invests primarily in municipal securities, the income on which is exempt from regular U.S. federal income tax.1 The Fund may invest in municipal securities of any maturity and credit quality, without limit in below investment grade municipal securities rated BB+/Ba1 or lower at the time of investment or unrated but judged to be of comparable quality, and without limit in municipal securities that generate income subject to the U.S. federal alternative minimum tax ("AMT Bonds"). No more than 20% of Managed Assets can be in taxable debt obligations, including taxable municipal securities, and no more than 10% of Managed Assets can be in defaulted securities or securities of issuers in bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings at the time of investment.

The Fund uses leverage and has a 12-year term with the potential to convert to perpetual.2

Fund basics

Capital structure

Leverage

*The ratio of total assets of the Fund, less all liabilities that are not outstanding borrowings or outstanding preferreds, at par, to the sum of the Fund’s outstanding borrowings and outstanding preferreds, at par.

**The annualized ratio of the sum of leverage costs to the average leverage amount for a given time period.

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.

Other Expenses and Total Expenses do not include interest expenses arising from the application of SFAS No. 140 to certain inverse floating rate securities (if any) held by the Fund. Interest expense arises because accounting rules require the Fund to treat interest paid by trusts issuing certain inverse floating rate instruments held by the Fund as having been paid (indirectly) by the Fund. Because the Fund also recognizes a corresponding amount of additional income earned (also indirectly), the Fund's net asset value per share, net investment income and total return have not been affected by this accounting treatment. See the Fund's Annual Report for information on the Fund's inverse floating rate investments and recognized interest expense.​

Expense ratios are calculated using the prior 12 months of expense data as of the previous month-end, except for new funds where the prospectus expense ratios are used for the first full three months following the Fund’s inception.  After the initial three months, actual expenses, annualized, are used until a full 12 months of expenses have been recorded. Annualized leverage financing expense is included if the Fund was leveraged as of the previous month end.

Premium/discount history

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. Market price and net asset value (NAV) of a Fund's shares will fluctuate with market conditions. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown.

Performance

  • Hypothetical growth of 10K
  • Average annual total returns

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.

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.

The funds regular monthly distributions may be subject to federal and/or state and local taxes and may be re-characterized as ordinary income. Any re-characterization will be reported in shareholders’ 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year. Income exempt from federal income tax may be subject to state and local taxes and the alternative minimum tax. Capital gains, if any, will be subject to capital gains tax.

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.

Top 10 issuers

Top sector allocation

Call exposure

For the percentage of the portfolio in debt, preferred and other hybrid securities, including CoCos (if any).​ Percentages reflect the percentage of the Fund's investment exposure callable in the timeframe relative to the “as of” date shown. The "Next 12 months" figure (if shown) includes investments that are currently callable, as well as callable in the next 12 months. Securities subject to call may not be called.

Top states

Credit quality

Ratings shown are the lowest rating given by one of the following national rating agencies: S&P, Moody's or Fitch. Credit ratings are subject to change. AAA, AA, A, and BBB are investment grade ratings; BB, B, CCC/CC/C and D are below-investment grade ratings. U.S. government securities, if owned by the Fund, are included in the U.S. Treasury/Agency category (included only if applicable). Holdings designated NR are not rated by these national rating agencies.

Maturity breakdown

All characteristics as a percentage of the fund's total net assets. Holdings and ratings are subject to change. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.

Exposures and breakdowns are asset-weighted using the current market value of bonds held in the portfolio, as well as the full amount and exposure of bonds held in a tender option bond (TOB) trust, even though the Fund owns only the residual inverse floater in its portfolio and managed assets. This may not be fully consistent with generally accepted accounting principles.

1 The anticipated managed distributions may be composed of net investment income, capital appreciation, or possibly a return of capital. Unlike a distribution attributable to tax-exempt income, a distribution attributable to capital appreciation and/or return of capital could be subject to tax depending on a shareholder’s situation. In addition, in certain circumstances, net investment income may be subject to state and local tax as well as the federal alternative minimum tax (“AMT”). Investors should consult their tax advisors about the tax consequences of an investment in the Fund.
2The Fund will terminate as of the close of business on 1 Sep 2032, provided that the Fund’s Board of Trustees may, in its sole discretion and without any action by the shareholders of the Fund, by vote of a majority of the then Board of Trustees with notice to the shareholders, extend the Fund’s term for up to two one year periods. In addition, the Board may determine to cause the Fund to conduct an Eligible Tender Offer. If the Eligible Tender Offer is completed, the Board of Trustees may, in its sole discretion and without any action by the shareholders of the Fund, by vote of a majority of the then Board of Trustees, provide that the Fund may continue without limitation of time subject to certain terms and conditions. If an Eligible Tender Offer is not conducted, the Fund will cease investment operations, retire or redeem its leverage facilities, liquidate its investment portfolio (to the extent possible) and distribute all of its liquidated net assets to Common Shareholders of record in one or more distributions on or after 1 Sep 2032 or as extended by the Board.
