Responsible investing at Nuveen
Unlocking investment potential while making an enduring impact on our world
As both a diversified global asset manager and an asset owner, we have a multifaceted perspective on responsible investing (RI).
Our commitment builds on over five decades of RI leadership through our parent company, TIAA, for whom we act as investment manager. Today, we continue to build on this legacy and apply our RI principles across our $1.2 trillion in assets under management.
We recognize that our clients expect us to be good stewards of their investments. We, therefore, implement a set of principles that support well-functioning markets to preserve financial, social and environmental capital. Data analytics and measurement form the foundation of our analysis, ensuring a robust and informed approach. We believe our approach of considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment research, due diligence, portfolio construction and ongoing monitoring contributes to long-term performance and helps reduce risk in our investments. By driving transparency, innovation, and global adoption of RI best practices across all asset classes, we have the opportunity to provide enduring benefits for clients, portfolio companies, society, our communities and the planet.
Over the course of 2021, we are placing additional emphasis around three core areas:
- Climate risk
- Impact measurement
- Inclusion & Diversity
We invite you to engage in conversations with us, around these important topics to see where we can work together to help drive positive change.
Why invest with Nuveen?
Risks and other important considerations
Mutual fund investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. The Fund will include only holdings deemed consistent with the applicable Environmental Social Governance (ESG) guidelines. As a result, the universe of investments available to the Fund will be more limited than other funds that do not apply such guidelines. ESG criteria risk is the risk that because the Fund’s ESG criteria exclude securities of certain issuers for nonfinancial reasons, the Fund may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that don’t use these criteria. Credit risk arises from an issuer’s ability to make interest and principal payments when due, as well as the prices of bonds declining when an issuer’s credit quality is expected to deteriorate. Interest rate risk occurs when interest rates rise causing bond prices to fall. The issuer of a debt security may be able to repay principal prior to the security’s maturity, known as prepayment (call) risk, because of an improvement in its credit quality or falling interest rates. In this event, this principal may have to be reinvested in securities with lower interest rates than the original securities, reducing the potential for income. Non-U.S. investments involve risks such as currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. Investments in below investment grade or high yield securities are subject to liquidity risk and heightened credit risk. These and other risk considerations, such as active management, extension, issuer, illiquid investments, income volatility, and derivatives risk, are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.
Before investing, carefully consider fund investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. For this and other information that should be read carefully, please request a prospectus or summary prospectus from Nuveen at 800-752-8700.
