The investment objective of the Nuveen Core Equity Alpha Fund is to provide an attractive level of total return, primarily through long term capital appreciation and secondarily through income and gains. The fund invests in a portfolio of actively managed common stocks selected from among the 500 stocks comprising the S&P 500 Index, using a proprietary mathematical process designed and implemented by INTECH, a sub-adviser of the fund. The fund also sells custom baskets of call options covering up to 50% of the fund’s equity portfolio in seeking to enhance risk-adjusted performance relative to an all equity portfolio.
