Company Press Release
CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Nuveen Investments, a leading provider of diversified investment services, today announced the availability of the Nuveen Symphony Credit Opportunities Fund (NCOAX). The new fund is the first mutual fund to leverage Symphony Asset Management’s bottom-up credit analysis as it looks across the capital structure of leveraged companies in its efforts to capture risk-adjusted returns in both catalyst-driven and special situations. The new fund is now available through advisors at leading broker-dealers, banks, insurance companies, financial planning and investment consulting firms.
The Nuveen Symphony Credit Opportunities Fund seeks current income and capital appreciation by investing in debt instruments such as bonds, loans and convertible securities, a substantial portion of which may be rated below investment-grade or, if unrated, deemed to be of comparable quality. The fund may also use derivatives, such as swaps, futures and options, to gain investment exposure.
