Shareholder activist Phillip Goldstein is waging yet another proxy battle to gain board seats on a closed-end fund, this time on the Strategic Global Income Fund of Credit Suisse Asset Management of New York.

Credit Suisse sent a letter to shareholders May 15 asking them to vote for its slate of four board members, instead of for Goldstein and three of his associates.

Goldstein and his slate plan to raise the share price of the fund from $6.937, at which it opened on May 22, by opening the fund or buying back shares, according to Credit Suisse.
