CHICAGO, June 18, 2009 — Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions and high-net-worth investors, today announced that both common and preferred shareholders of the Nuveen Insured Florida Tax-Free Advantage Municipal Fund (NWF) and Nuveen Insured Florida Premium Income Municipal Fund (NFL) have approved the merger of their funds into the Nuveen Insured Tax-Free Advantage Municipal Fund (NEA) and the Nuveen Insured Municipal Opportunity Fund (NIO), respectively.
The vote by shareholders of Nuveen’s two remaining Florida closed-end funds, the Nuveen Florida Investment Quality Municipal Fund (NQF) and the Nuveen Florida Quality Income Municipal Fund (NUF), to approve their merger with the Nuveen Premium Income Municipal Fund 2 (NPM) remains open, and the meeting for each of those Florida funds has been adjourned until Friday, June 19, 2009.
The vote by shareholders of each of the three Nuveen national closed-end funds named above to approve the respective merger or mergers with one or two Nuveen Florida closed-end funds remains open, and the meeting for each of those funds has been adjourned until July 24, 2009.
Earlier this year, ISS Governance Services Inc. (ISS) recommended that shareholders in the four Florida and three national closed-end funds vote in favor of each of the proposed mergers. ISS is widely recognized as the leading independent proxy advisory firm; and its recommendations are relied upon by major institutional investment firms, mutual funds, and other fiduciaries throughout the country.
