Responsible investing

We believe responsible investing is vital for long-term success

We believe responsible investing can drive better outcomes for investors, our communities and the planet and is an integral part of our process. By embedding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment research, due diligence, portfolio construction and ongoing monitoring, we seek to improve clients’ long-term performance and reduce risk.

Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), 2023 Assessment Report for Nuveen, December 2022. UN PRI signatories report on their responsible investment activities annually by using the PRI’s Reporting Framework, which is comprised of 13 modules. Asset managers that report on their responsible investment activities through the PRI’s Reporting Framework receive an Assessment Report, which provides a raw score (0-100) and a corresponding ‘star score’ on each of the modules. A five-star grade is the highest possible score, awarded to those signatories that demonstrate leading practices within the responsible investment industry. The one-star grade is allocated to those whose responsible investment practices are at the lower end of the scale, including those that do not incorporate ESG factors in their investment decisions. Publicly disclosing module raw scores or star scores is at the manager’s discretion. According to the PRI, disclosing scores is a public demonstration of a firm’s commitment to including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in investment decision making and ownership. The full methodology is publicly available on the PRI website.

Important information on risk

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including the possible loss of principal, and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Certain products and services may not be available to all entities or persons. There is no guarantee that investment objectives will be achieved.

Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well.

ESG integration incorporates financially relevant ESG factors into investment research in support of portfolio management for actively managed strategies. Financial relevancy of ESG factors varies by asset class and investment strategy. Applicability of ESG factors may differ across investment strategies. ESG factors are among many factors considered in evaluating an investment decision, and unless otherwise stated in the relevant offering memorandum or prospectus, do not alter the investment guidelines, strategy or objectives.
