Closed-end fund shareholder Philip Goldstein has charged that the board of directors of the Dresdner RCM Global Strategic Income Fund is out of touch with the interests of shareholders because board members are unwilling to open the fund.

That charge, and others, were made in a preliminary proxy statement Goldstein filed with the SEC Aug. 28. Goldstein, who is principal of Opportunity Partners, a private investment partnership in Pleasantville, NY., owns 700,000 shares of the $90 million fund for himself and his clients. The fund is managed by Dresdner RCM Global Investors of San Francisco.
