Nuveen Short Duration Credit Opportunities Fund (NYSE: JSD)

Fund Manager

Founded in 1994 by a team of industry veterans known for their pioneering work in quantitative analysis, Symphony Asset Management LLC is an institutional market leader in alternative and traditional investment strategies. Fundamental to Symphony’s investment philosophy is the concept that both quantitative and qualitative methods have value. The ability to blend these values into a unified, risk-controlled investment process is a skill that sets Symphony apart as an institutional money manager. Prior to implementation, each of our strategies has been thoroughly tested in one of the industry’s most sophisticated research environments. The resulting process is intellectually robust and independent of any one person’s influence or abilities.
