NEW YORK, November 29, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Nuveen Multi-Asset Income Fund (NYSE: NMAI) declared its initial quarterly managed distribution of $0.3500 per share. The fund began trading on the NYSE on November 22, 2021 following the reorganization of Nuveen Diversified Dividend and Income Fund (JDD), Nuveen Tax-Advantaged Total Return Strategy Fund (JTA), and Nuveen Tax-Advantaged Dividend Growth Fund (JTD) into NMAI.
The following dates apply to today's quarterly distribution declaration:
December 15, 2021
December 14, 2021
December 31, 2021
Nuveen Multi-Asset Income Fund
*Market price as of November 26, 2021
The new distribution per share for NMAI reflects an increase, compared to JDD, JTA and JTD’s most recent distribution per share, for all shareholders on a common share equivalent-basis, which takes into account the different NAV levels of the funds before and after the reorganization.
NMAI has adopted a managed distribution policy. The goal of a managed distribution program is to provide shareholders relatively consistent and predictable cash flow by systematically converting expected long-term return potential into regular distributions. Historical distribution sources have included net investment income, realized gains and return of capital. If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time which may be viewed at www.nuveen.com/CEFdistributions. These estimates may not match the final tax characterization contained in shareholders’ 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year.
Under a managed distribution policy, Nuveen closed-end funds seek to maintain a stable regular distribution amount that, over the long term, matches the fund’s total distributions paid to its total return. Investors should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate or from the terms of its managed distribution policy.
Actual returns likely will differ from projected long-term returns, (and therefore a fund’s distribution rate, also), at least over shorter time periods. Over a specific timeframe, a fund’s net asset value will increase (if returns exceed distributions), or decrease (if distributions exceed returns), by the difference between actual returns and total distributions.
A return of capital is a non-taxable distribution of a portion of the fund’s capital. When a fund’s returns exceed distributions, return of capital may represent portfolio gains earned, but not realized as a taxable capital gain. In periods when a fund’s returns fall short of distributions, it will represent a portion of the investors’ original principal unless the shortfall is offset during other time periods over the life of the investment (previous or subsequent) when the fund’s total return exceeds distributions.
