As previously announced, the restructuring will create a series of scaled, unleveraged funds, each offering shareholders a choice of underlying equity index exposure (S&P 500, Dow 30 or Nasdaq 100) along with an option overlay strategy that seeks to provide participation in the returns of the respective indices but with less expected volatility and a measure of downside protection over time. The funds involved in the restructuring are:

  • Nuveen Equity Premium Income Fund (JPZ);
  • Nuveen Equity Premium and Growth Fund (JPG);
  • Nuveen Equity Premium Advantage Fund (JLA);
  • Dow 30 SM Premium & Dividend Income Fund Inc. (DPD);
  • Dow 30 SM Enhanced Premium & Income Fund Inc. (DPO);
  • NASDAQ Premium Income & Growth Fund Inc. (QQQX);and
  • Nuveen Equity Premium Opportunity Fund (JSN).
