Nuveen Offers Symphony-Backed Hedge-Like Credit Mutual Fund

May 26 2010 | 9:52am ET

Mutual fund house Nuveen Investments is bringing a distressed debt hedge fund’s eye to retail investors. The Chicago-based firm has hired hedge fund Symphony Asset Management to subadvise its new credit opportunities fund.

The Nuveen Symphony Credit Opportunities Fund will invest in below-investment-grade bonds, loans and convertible securities, guided by San Francisco-based Symphony’s bottom-up analysis.

“At a time when robust and fundamental credit analysis is especially critical to constructing quality debt portfolios, we are pleased to bring this new Symphony strategy to retail mutual fund investors,” says Alan Brown, executive vice president at Nuveen.
