Understanding UNII balances

Abstract image of hexagons

Undistributed net investment income (“UNII”) reflects how much, beyond current earnings, a closed-end fund has available to pay future distributions. Here we provide an overview of how UNII, and trends in UNII balances, may impact distributions, and where to learn more about UNII in Nuveen closed-end funds.

Why is a change in UNII balance important?

A closed-end fund’s UNII balance reflects the total amount the fund has available, beyond current earnings, from which to make future distributions to shareholders. This amount can change each month as the fund earns income and/or pays out distributions. While the absolute level of the UNII balance is important, the trend of the UNII balance over time may be of equal or greater importance as it can impact both future distributions and the fund’s net asset value (NAV) per share.

Finding UNII information

UNII appears in a downloadable file “Earnings and UNII Information” on nuveen.com/cef under the Distributions section of any closed-end fund’s page.

The net income and UNII figures are monthly amounts based on three- or six-month averages. Closed-end fund historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains, and return of capital, though the funds shown above include only net investment income in their regular distributions.
