Chair’s
Letter
to
Shareholders
Dear
Shareholders,
The
question
of
whether
economies
are
moving
toward
normalization
or
recession
has
dominated
financial
markets
in
2022.
Persistently
high
inflation
has
made
the
outcome
more
unpredictable,
as
it
has
dampened
consumer
sentiment,
pushed
central
banks
into
raising
interest
rates
more
aggressively
and
contributed
to
considerable
turbulence
in
the
markets
this
year.
Inflation
has
surged
partially
due
to
COVID
supply
chain
bottlenecks
and
exacerbated
by
Russia’s
war
in
Ukraine
and
recent
lockdowns
across
China
to
contain
a
large-scale
COVID-
19
outbreak.
This
has
necessitated
increasingly
forceful
responses
from
the
U.S.
Federal
Reserve
(Fed)
and
other
central
banks,
who
have
signaled
their
intentions
to
slow
inflation
while
tolerating
slower
economic
growth.
As
anticipated,
the
Fed
began
the
rate
hiking
cycle
in
March
2022,
raising
its
short-term
rate
by
0.25%
from
near
zero
for
the
first
time
since
the
pandemic
was
declared
two
years
ago.
Larger
increases
of
0.50%
in
May
and
0.75%
in
June,
July
and
September
2022
followed,
bringing
the
target
fed
funds
rate
to
a
range
of
3.00%
to
3.25%.
Additional
rate
hikes
are
expected
in
the
remainder
of
this
year,
although
Fed
officials
will
closely
monitor
inflation
data
along
with
other
economic
measures
and
modify
their
rate
setting
policy
based
upon
these
factors.
U.S.
gross
domestic
product
growth
has
now
contracted
for
two
consecutive
quarters,
according
to
government
estimates,
as
consumer
and
business
activity
has
slowed
in
part
due
to
higher
prices
and
borrowing
costs.
However,
the
still
strong
labor
market
suggests
not
all
areas
of
the
economy
are
weakening
in
unison.
While
markets
will
likely
continue
fluctuating
with
the
daily
headlines,
we
encourage
investors
to
keep
a
long-term
perspective.
To
learn
more
about
how
well
your
portfolio
is
aligned
to
your
time
horizon,
risk
tolerance
and
investment
goals,
consider
reviewing
it
with
your
financial
professional.
On
behalf
of
the
other
members
of
the
Nuveen
Fund
Board,
we
look
forward
to
continuing
to
earn
your
trust
in
the
months
and
years
ahead.

U.S.
economic
and
market
conditions,
key
investment

and
the
performance
of
the

for
the
twelve-month
reporting

What
factors
affected
the
U.S.
economy
and
the
bond
market
during
the
twelve-month
annual
reporting
period
ended
July
31,
2022?
After
recovering
from
the
pandemic
in
2021,
the
U.S.
economy
weakened
in
the
first
half
of
2022.
Overall,
2021
gross
domestic
product
(GDP)
grew
by
5.7%
as
the
economy
reopened
with
the
help
of
$5.3
trillion
in
crisis-related
aid
from
the
federal
government,
low
borrowing
rates
for
businesses
and
individuals,
an
increase
in
COVID-19
vaccinations
and
improved
treatments
for
COVID-19.
However,
in
early
2022,
China’s
COVID-19
lockdown
and
the
Russia-Ukraine
war
worsened
existing
pandemic-related
supply
chain
disruptions.
Inflation
increased
more
than
expected
during
the
first
half
of
2022,
putting
pressure
on
global
central
banks
to
respond
with
more
aggressive
measures.
The
U.S.
Federal
Reserve
(Fed)
began
an
interest
rate
hiking
cycle
in
March
2022
with
a
0.25%
hike
to
the
target
federal
funds
rate,
followed
by
larger
increases
of
0.50%
in
May
2022,
0.75%
in
June
2022
and
another
0.75%
in
July
2022.
Overall,
the
Fed
raised
the
target
federal
funds
rate
from
near
zero
at
the
start
of
2022
to
a
range
of
2.25%
to
2.50%
by
July
2022.
Subsequent
to
the
end
of
the
reporting
period,
the
Fed
raised
the
policy
interest
rate
another
0.75%
in
September
2022
to
a
range
of
3.00%
to
3.25%.
Interest
rate,
stock
and
bond
price
volatility
increased
as
markets
considered
whether
the
Fed
could
cool
inflation
without
putting
the
economy
into
a
recession.
Additionally,
the
U.S.
dollar
appreciated
significantly
relative
to
major
world
currencies
beginning
in
March
of
2022,
serving
as
a
headwind
to
the
profits
of
international
companies
and
U.S.
domestic
companies
with
overseas
earnings.
The
dollar’s
appreciation
was
driven
in
part
by
the
Fed’s
increasingly
forceful
response
to
inflation
compared
with
other
central
banks,
the
relatively
better
prospects
of
the
U.S.
economy
and
“safe-haven”
flows
from
investors
uncertain
about
geopolitical
and
global
economic
conditions.
By
mid-year,
inflation
and
higher
borrowing
costs
appeared
to
be
dampening
consumer
confidence
and
consumer
spending.
Also,
two
consecutive
quarters
of
negative
U.S.
GDP
growth
added
to
recession
risks.
U.S.
GDP
fell
by
an
annual
rate
of
0.6%
in
the
second
quarter
of
2022,
according
to
the
second
estimate
from
the
U.S.
Bureau
of
Economic
Analysis.
This
followed
a
1.6%
annualized
GDP
decrease
in
the
first
quarter
of
2022.
However,
the
labor
market,
another
key
gauge
of
the
economy’s
health,
has
remained
resilient.
As
of
July
2022,
the
U.S.
unemployment
rate
fell
to
3.5%,
its
pre-pandemic
low,
and
the
economy
has
now
recovered
the
22
million
jobs
lost
since
the
beginning
of
the
pandemic.
During
the
twelve-month
reporting
period,
U.S.
fixed
income
performance
was
broadly
negative.
Increased
uncertainty
about
rising
inflation,
slowing
economic
growth
and
the
measures
taken
by
the
Fed
in
response
to
these
conditions
drove
interest
rates
higher.
Treasury
yields
rose
across
all
maturities,
peaking
in
mid-June
2022,
before
partially
retreating
through
the
remainder
of
the
reporting
period.
Notably,
a
portion
of
the
Treasury
yield
curve
inverted
toward
the
end
of
the
reporting
period,
as
shorter-maturity
bonds
were
yielding
more
than
10-year
Treasury
notes,
signaling
the
market’s
growing
concern
about
a
recession.
As
of
July
31,
2022,
yields
on
U.S.
Treasuries
with
1-year
maturities
rose
to
2.98%
(from
0.07%
as
of
July
31,
2021),
5-year
Treasury
yield
rose
to
2.68%
(from
0.69%),
10-year
yields
rose
to
2.65%
(from
1.23%)
and
30-year
yields
rose
to
3.01%
(from
1.90%).
Credit
spreads
widened
in
the
first
half
of
2022
as
a
result
of
increased
risk
aversion,
contributing
to
the
negative
performance
of
corporate
(both
investment
grade
and
high
yield)
bonds
and
securitized
debt.

What
key
strategies
were
used
to
manage
the
Fund
during
the
twelve-month
reporting
period
ended
July
31,
2022?
The
Fund
employs
a
passive
management
(or
“indexing”)
approach,
seeking
to
track
the
investment
results,
before
fees
and
expenses,
of
the
ICE
BofA
Enhanced
Yield
U.S.
Broad
Bond
Index
(the
“NUAG
Enhanced
Index”).
The
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
is
designed
to
broadly
capture
the
U.S.
investment
grade
taxable
fixed
income
market
and
uses
a
rules-based
weighting
methodology
that
seeks
to
enhance
yield
while
maintaining
risk
at
a
level
comparable
to
that
of
the
ICE
BofA
U.S.
Broad
Market
Index
(the
“Base
Index”).
The
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
selects
from
the
securities
included
in
the
Base
Index,
which
consists
of
U.S.
dollar
denominated,
investment
grade
taxable
debt
securities,
including
U.S.
Treasury
notes
and
bonds,
government
securities,
corporate
securities,
residential
and
commercial
mortgage-backed
securities
and
asset-backed
securities.
The
Fund
generally
invests
in
a
sample
of
the
securities
in
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
whose
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
resemble
the
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
of
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
Under
normal
market
conditions,
the
Fund
invests
at
least
80%
of
its
assets
in
component
securities
of
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
To
the
extent
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
concentrates
(i.e.,
holds
25%
or
more
of
its
total
assets)
in
the
securities
of
companies
in
a
particular
industry
or
group
of
industries,
the
Fund
will
concentrate
its
investments
to
approximately
the
same
extent
as
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
The
Fund
rebalances
its
holdings
monthly
in
response
to
the
monthly
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
rebalances.
During
the
reporting
period,
the
Fund
remained
fully
invested
within
its
allocation
targets
to
track
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
How
did
the
Fund
perform
during
the
twelve-month
reporting
period
ended
July
31,
2022?
The
Fund’s
total
returns
at
NAV
are
compared
with
the
performance
of
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index,
which
the
Fund
is
designed
to
track.
The
Fund’s
total
return
underperformed
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
for
the
reporting
period.
The
relative
underperformance
is
mainly
attributable
to
the
representative
sampling
process,
primarily
within
the
securitized
sector
and
corporate
sector,
which
utilizes
a
subset
of
Index
securities
in
an
effort
to
provide
exposure
similar
to
that
of
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
This
leads
the
Fund
to
be
overweight
and
underweight
(and,
in
some
cases,
not
invested
at
all)
in
certain
securities
as
compared
to
the
Index.
In
addition,
the
Fund’s
relative
underperformance
is
attributable
to
transaction
costs
related
to
the
Fund’s
acquisition
of
portfolio
securities,
and
the
fees
and
expenses
incurred
by
the
Fund
that
are
not
incurred
by
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index.
The
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
is
unmanaged
and
therefore
its
returns
do
not
reflect
any
fees
or
expenses,
which
would
detract
from
its
performance.
During
the
reporting
period,
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index
underperformed
the
Base
Index
led
primarily
by
the
NUAG
Enhanced
Index’s
relative
overweight
to
lower-rated
investment
grade
credits.
The
NUAG
Enhanced
Index’s
relative
overweight
is
consistent
with
its
rules-based
weighting
methodology.

Select
Index
(“the
NUHY
Select
Index”).
The
NUHY
Select
Index
is
composed
of
U.S.
dollar-denominated
below
investment
grade
corporate
bonds
with
above
average
liquidity
that
satisfy
certain
ESG
and
low-carbon
criteria.
The
NUHY
Select
Index
selects
from
the
securities
included
in
the
Bloomberg
U.S.
High
Yield
Very
Liquid
Index
(the
“Base
Index”),
which
is
designed
to
broadly
capture
the
U.S.
dollar-denominated,
high
yield,
fixed-rate
corporate
bond
market.
The
Fund
generally
invests
in
a
sample
of
the
securities
in
the
NUHY
Select
Index
whose
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
resemble
the
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
of
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
Under
normal
market
conditions,
the
Fund
invests
at
least
80%
of
the
sum
of
its
net
assets
and
the
amount
of
any
borrowings
for
investment
purposes
in
component
securities
of
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
To
the
extent
the
NUHY
Select
Index
concentrates
(i.e.,
holds
25%
or
more
of
its
total
assets)
in
the
securities
of
companies
in
a
particular
industry
or
group
of
industries,
the
Fund
will
concentrate
its
investments
to
approximately
the
same
extent
as
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
The
Fund
rebalances
its
holdings
monthly
in
response
to
the
monthly
NUHY
Select
Index
rebalances.
During
the
reporting
period,
the
Fund
remained
fully
invested
within
its
allocation
targets
to
track
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
How
did
the
Fund
perform
during
the
twelve-month
reporting
period
ended
July
31,
2022?
The
Fund’s
total
returns
at
NAV
are
compared
with
the
performance
of
the
NUHY
Select
Index,
which
the
Fund
is
designed
to
track.
For
the
reporting
period,
the
Fund’s
total
return
underperformed
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
The
relative
underperformance
is
mainly
attributable
to
transaction
costs
related
to
the
Fund’s
acquisition
of
portfolio
securities,
and
the
fees
and
expenses
incurred
by
the
Fund
that
are
not
incurred
by
the
NUHY
Select
Index.
The
NUHY
Select
Index
is
unmanaged
and
therefore
its
returns
do
not
reflect
any
fees
or
expenses,
which
would
detract
from
its
performance.
During
the
reporting
period,
the
NUHY
Select
Index
performed
in
line
with
the
Base
Index.
Security
selection
across
a
number
of
sectors
contributed
positively
to
relative
performance
but
was
offset
by
relative
underweights
in
industries
such
as
tobacco,
energy
exploration
&
production,
and
metals
&
mining.
The
NUHY
Select
Index’s
underweight
in
these
industries
is
consistent
with
its
ESG
selection
methodology.

What
key
strategies
were
used
to
manage
the
Fund
during
the
twelve-month
reporting
period
ended

The
Fund
employs
a
passive
management
(or
“indexing”)
approach,
seeking
to
track
the
investment
results,
before
fees
and
expenses,
of
the
Bloomberg
MSCI
U.S.

ESG
Select
Index
(“the
NUBD

The
NUBD
Select
Index
selects
from
the
securities
included
in
the
Bloomberg
U.S.
Aggregate
Bond
Index
(the
“Base
Index”),
which
is
designed
to
broadly
capture
the
U.S.
investment
grade,
taxable
fixed
income
market.
The
Fund
generally
invests
in
a
sample
of
the
securities
in
the
NUBD
Select
Index
whose
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
resemble
the
risk,
return
and
other
characteristics
of
the
NUBD
Select
Index.
Under
normal
market
conditions,
the
Fund
invests
at
least
80%
of
the
sum
of
its
net
assets
and
the
amount
of
any
borrowings
for
investment
purposes
in
component
securities
of
the
NUBD
Select
Index.
To
the
extent
the
NUBD
Select
Index
concentrates
(i.e.,
holds
25%
or
more
of
its
total
assets)
in
the
securities
of
companies
in
a
particular
industry
or
group
of
industries,
the
Fund
will
concentrate
its
investments
to
approximately
the
same
extent
as
the
NUBD

The
Fund
rebalances
its
holdings
monthly
in

to
the

rebalances.
During

How
did
the
Fund
perform
during
the
twelve-month
reporting
period
ended
July
31,
2022?
The
Fund’s
total
returns
at
NAV
are
compared
with
the
performance
of
the
NUBD
Select
Index,
which
the
Fund
is
designed
to
track.
For
the
reporting
period,
the
Fund’s
total
return
underperformed
the
NUBD
Select
Index.
The
relative
underperformance
is
mainly
attributable
to
the
representative
sampling
process,
primarily
within
the
securitized
sector
and
corporate
sector,
which
utilizes
a
subset
of
Index
securities
in
an
effort
to
provide
exposure
similar
to
that
of
the
NUBD
Select
Index.
This
leads
the
Fund
to
be
overweight
and
underweight
(and,
in
some
cases,
not
invested
at
all)
in
certain
securities
as
compared
to
the
Index.
In
addition,
the
Fund’s
relative
performance
is
attributable
to
transaction
costs
related
to
the
Fund’s
acquisition
of
portfolio
securities,
and
the
fees
and
expenses
incurred
by
the
Fund
that
are
not
incurred
by
the
NUBD
Select
Index.
The
NUBD
Select
Index
is
unmanaged
and
therefore
its
returns
do
not
reflect
any
fees
or
expenses,
which
would
detract
from
its
performance.
During
the
reporting
period,
the
NUBD
Select
Index
performed
in
line
with
the
Base
Index.
Sector
allocations
were
consistent
in
both
the
NUBD
Select
Index
and
Base
Index
while
security
selection
slightly
detracted
in
agencies
and
contributed
in
the
industrial
and
local
authority
sectors.
