Nuveen Announces Investment Policy Changes For Several Insured Municipal Closed-End Funds

Reissuing release dated May 3, 2010 to add Nuveen Insured Massachusetts Tax-Free Advantage Municipal Fund ( NGX) to list of affected funds.

The corrected release reads:


Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions and high-net-worth investors, today announced that the Board of 17 insured municipal bond closed-end funds has approved changes to each such fund’s investment policies. The Board of each fund took this action in response to the continuing challenges faced by municipal bond insurers. The changes to each fund’s investment policies are intended to increase the fund’s investment flexibility in pursuing its investment objective, while retaining the insured nature of its portfolio.

The changes provide that:

  • At least 80 percent of the managed assets of each fund will be invested in municipal securities that, at time of purchase, are covered by insurance guaranteeing the timely payment of principal and interest thereon; and
  • the municipal securities in which each fund invests will be investment grade at the time of purchase (including (i) bonds insured by investment grade insurers or rated investment grade; (ii) unrated bonds that are judged to be investment grade by Nuveen Asset Management; and (iii) escrowed bonds).

These changes are effective immediately. The affected funds are:
