The financial markets have experienced significant turmoil recently. Auction-rate preferred shares (ARPS) issued by many closed-end funds, including those of Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC, have been directly affected. The disruptions in the financial markets have included a number of failed auctions and an ensuing unprecedented lack of liquidity for holders of ARPS, which has raised questions and concerns among some of the funds’ ARPS shareholders.
Allianz Global Investors has created this ARPS information center to collect important resources and information regarding closed-end fund ARPS issues.
Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC (“AGIFM”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Asset Management of America L.P., serves as the Fund’s investment manager. The Funds' daily New York Stock Exchange closing prices, weekly net asset values per share, as well as other information, including updated portfolio statistics and performance is available at http://us.allianzgi.com or by calling the Funds' shareholder servicing agent at 1-866-298-8462.
