Fort Dearborn Income Securities Inc. Announces Portfolio Management Change
UBS Global Asset Management

CHICAGO, Jul 10, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fort Dearborn Income Securities, Inc. FDI +0.02% (the "Fund")--a closed-end management investment company seeking a stable stream of current income consistent with external interest rate conditions and a total return over time that is above what shareholders could receive by investing individually in the investment grade and long-term maturity sectors of the bond market--today named Scott E. Dolan, John Dugenske, Craig G. Ellinger and Brian Fehrenbach as lead portfolio managers for the Fund.

These changes align with UBS Global Asset Management (Americas) Inc.'s ("UBS Global AM"), the Fund's Advisor, decision to expand the Fund's portfolio management structure to a team-based approach. As lead portfolio managers, Messrs. Dolan, Dugenske, Ellinger and Fehrenbach will be jointly and primarily responsible for the day-to-day management of the Fund's portfolio, and for reviewing the overall composition of the portfolio to ensure its compliance with the Fund's stated investment objective and strategy.

Michael Dow, previously the lead portfolio manager for the Fund, is taking on a new role within UBS Global AM's fixed Income team, overseeing the expansion of the global sovereign research platform that will span developed and emerging markets, and which will be leveraged globally by UBS Global AM's portfolio management teams.
