“Since its creation, we have extensively surveyed users of ETFConnect.com to better understand the tools and information they are looking for, to help them create and monitor their investment portfolios,” said Anne Kritzmire, Managing Director for Nuveen Investments’ Closed-End Funds. “The new site is in response to the comments and requests we have received from both investors and advisors seeking more robust, timely, and intuitive information on their investments, particularly closed-end funds. More and more, investors are looking toward closed-end funds to help provide investment income, and we believe CEFConnect.com can identify closed-end funds that seek to address this need and enhance the user’s ability to research, create and track their investments.”
On the new site, current users of ETFConnect.com who are specifically interested in Index ETF information will be guided to other prominent online resources that can help them with their ongoing ETF research needs.
