Investing in interval funds
Interval funds may be of interest to investors seeking additional yield and total return, often through less liquid investment strategies, requiring a higher risk tolerance.

The Nuveen Family of Funds and the TIAA-CREF Funds are distinct fund families that comprise different investment products, each with its own features, terms and conditions, fee structures and risk factors. Please note, there are no exchange privileges between the two fund families.

Interval funds, closed-end funds, and mutual funds are different types of investment vehicles with different expense structures and different inflows/outflows and distribution requirements. A closed-end fund's use of leverage creates the possibility of higher volatility for the fund's per share NAV, market price, distributions and returns. There is no assurance that a fund's leveraging strategy will be successful. Closed-end funds historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains and return of capital. Closed-end fund shares may frequently trade at a discount or premium to their net asset value. There can be no assurance that the investment objectives of the partnership will be achieved.

A word on risk
Investing in interval funds involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved. Debt or fixed income securities such as those held by the Fund, are subject to market risk, credit risk, interest rate risk, call risk, tax risk, political and economic risk, and income risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices fall. Credit risk refers to an issuers ability to make interest and principal payments when due. The Fund concentrates in non-investment-grade and unrated bonds, as well as special situations municipal securities, with long maturities and durations which carry heightened credit risk, liquidity risk, and potential for default. In addition, the Fund oftentimes utilizes a significant amount of leverage and in doing so, assumes a high level of risk in pursuit of its objectives. Leverage involves the risk that the Fund could lose more than its original investment and also increases the Fund's exposure to volatility, interest rate risk and credit risk.

An interval fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company that continuously offers its common shares. An interval fund is not intended to be a complete investment program and, due to the uncertainty inherent in all investments, there can be no assurance that the fund will achieve its investment objectives. An interval fund's performance and the value of its investments will vary in response to changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of a security's issuer, ratings on a security, perceptions of the issuer, and other market factors. Common shares at any point in time may be worth less than your original investment, even after taking into account the reinvestment of fund dividends and distributions. These and other risk considerations are described in more detail on the Fund's web page at

Before investing, carefully consider fund investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. For this and other information that should be read carefully, please request a prospectus, and if available, a summary prospectus, from your financial professional or Nuveen at 800.257.8787 or visit
