Our clients

We have a history and philosophy of putting the client first.

Our shared legacy of service with parent company, TIAA, our like-minded partner approach, and our distinct investment platform is how we deliver outcome-based solutions for our institutional clients.

Institutions benefit from our ability to offer opportunities to solve for risk and return, as one of the largest asset managers in the world. Our private ownership helps provide financial stability1 and allows us to be focused on longer term results, not quarterly earnings. Finally, our history of helping clients solve their investment needs spans decades: as a retirement income provider, an alternatives manager and one of the pioneers in responsible investing.


We strive to partner with consultants on a client-by-client basis to deliver solutions that help meet our mutual client’s investment objectives. Whether the need is a multi-asset solution or a single investment option, we design optimal allocation solutions for all types of institutional clients. Our investment teams are a resource to both consultants and clients for many of today’s toughest investment challenges.

As corporate defined-benefit plans evaluate needs in today’s markets — from de-risking to portfolio allocation — Nuveen offers insights and capabilities as a retirement provider with over 100 years experience2, and a legacy of solving for investment needs.

Defined Contribution

We are committed to, and experienced in, helping clients meet their retirement plan challenges with a century of experience in the defined contribution market. Our team works in consultation with plan sponsors and consultants to evaluate retirement plan investment menus, and identify ways to improve outcomes for plan participants.
