Nuveen Multi-Strategy Income And Growth Fund 2 Announces Approval To Reposition Portfolio And Change Fund Name

Stocks in this article: JQC

Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as high-net-worth and affluent investors, today announced that the Board of Trustees of the Nuveen Multi-Strategy Income and Growth Fund 2 (NYSE: JQC) approved repositioning the fund’s current portfolio and adopting a single-strategy, debt-oriented approach. JQC’s investment objective of high current income with a secondary objective of total return will remain unchanged. The Board also approved changing the fund’s name to Nuveen Credit Strategies Income Fund once the repositioning is completed.

The goal of the proposed repositioning is to increase the attractiveness of the fund’s common shares and narrow the fund’s trading discount by:

  • Simplifying the fund to focus on one of its current core portfolio strategies;
  • Positioning the fund in a closed-end fund category that is well understood and has historically seen more consistent secondary market demand; and
  • Differentiating the fund from similar funds, including other Nuveen closed-end funds in the same fund category.

In approving the proposed repositioning plan, the Board considered a broad range of alternatives for improving the level at which the fund’s common shares trade relative to net asset value. These alternatives included expanded share repurchases, tender offers, fund restructuring, mergers, fund reorganization, conversion to open-end format and liquidation. The Board concluded that the proposed portfolio repositioning represents the most attractive alternative for enhancing investor appeal and therefore was in the best interests of the fund and its shareholders.

The fund will hold a special shareholder meeting later this year to seek approval for certain aspects of the repositioning that require shareholder approval. More details on the repositioning can be found in the JQC Portfolio Repositioning Overview by clicking here: and additional information will be available in the proxy materials expected to be filed in the coming weeks.
