Unit Trusts – Sponsored by Incapital
While Nuveen Investments currently does not offer unit trusts as a sponsor, Nuveen Asset Management, LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Nuveen Investments, joined efforts with Incapital LLC to create unit trusts. Nuveen Asset Management serves as portfolio consultant, responsible for recommending securities for the unit trusts. Incapital serves as sponsor and sells units to the public through broker-dealers and other firms.
There is no assurance that a unit investment trust will achieve its investment objective. An investment in a unit investment trust is subject to market risk, which is the possibility that the market values of securities owned by the trust will decline and that the value of trust units may therefore be less than what you paid for them. Accordingly, you can lose money investing in a trust.
