Duff & Phelps Global Utility Income Fund Marks First Anniversary

CHICAGO, Aug. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co., an affiliated manager of Virtus Investment Partners, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRTS), will celebrate the one-year trading anniversary of the Duff & Phelps Global Utility Income Fund Inc. (NYSE: DPG) by ringing The Closing Bell ® at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, August 3.

The Duff & Phelps Global Utility Income Fund is a non-diversified closed-end fund that began trading on July 27, 2011 following a $735 million common stock offering, the second-largest closed-end fund IPO of the year.  Managed by DPIM, the fund currently has approximately $980 million of assets and pays a $0.35-per-share quarterly dividend.
