Nuveen Municipal Value Fund Celebrates 25 Years Of Consistent Tax Free Income

Stocks in this article: NUV

Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced the 25-year anniversary of the Nuveen Municipal Value Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NUV). Led since inception by portfolio manager, Tom Spalding, the fund was introduced on June 17, 1987, and is Nuveen’s oldest closed-end fund.

“We believe NUV is really a poster child for what a closed-end fund should be, in that CEFs are designed for income,” said Bill Adams, Executive Vice President of Nuveen Investments. “There is an increasing demand for tax-free income in the marketplace, especially as the Baby Boomer generation is now entering retirement en masse. Investors are looking for funds that generate a reliable dividend over time, and NUV has demonstrated its ability to provide that over a very long period of time,” he said.

Led by Spalding and supported by a deep team of research analysts and traders, the Nuveen Municipal Value Fund, Inc. has provided a measure of stability and financial confidence throughout various market cycles. Throughout its 25 year history, NUV’s net asset value has fluctuated within a total range of $2.49, with investors enjoying a solid history of regular, monthly tax-exempt distributions.*

“Unlike the tremendous changes we have experienced in other areas of our lives since 1987, NUV has historically stayed the course, and is really designed for the long-term investor,” said Spalding. “The asset values have held up very well in the marketplace, so I think it’s a testimony that the product has done its job to provide investors with stable tax-free income, month after month and year after year,” he said.
