A client message from Jose Minaya, Chief Executive Officer, Nuveen
The terrible challenges of the coronavirus are renewing my drive to deliver on Nuveen’s purpose of investing to create an enduring impact on our world—from the “micro” impact of generating lifetime income for a single person to the “macro” impact of creating better long-term outcomes for everyone.
We will strengthen our investment in our partnership with our clients. In the past few weeks we’ve reached out to thousands of you with real-time insights, commentaries, videos, conference calls and direct access to our experts to help you evaluate and strengthen your own clients’ portfolios and position them for the post-crisis environment we all hope emerges very soon. My colleagues and I will also continue investing ourselves to create better outcomes for our communities. We are donating medical supplies, protective gear and meals, repurposing property investments for medical use and have recently launched the Nuveen Impact Grant.
Better outcomes have always been Nuveen’s mission. Our parent, TIAA, was founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1918 (the same year another pandemic, the so-called Spanish flu, began) to create viable retirements for teachers. TIAA again broadened—and strengthened—its purpose and resolve in 2014 by acquiring Nuveen, which had its start in 1898 when John Nuveen helped pioneer municipal finance for the purpose of building America’s infrastructure.
Together we are better still on your behalf: TIAA’s exceptionally strong balance sheet, exclusive focus on clients as a not-for-profit and long-term vision enhance—and are enhanced by—Nuveen’s broad and deep investment capabilities across geographies and all private and public markets. We have the necessary liquidity and flexibility not only to play defense, but also to respond as new opportunities unfold. And as a private enterprise truly aligned with our clients, we are free from the distractions of managing to a stock price or quarterly earnings and able to focus solely on delivering the best outcomes for our clients and our world.
The next 100 years—and beyondI am honored to be serving you—and proud to be working alongside colleagues whose sense of mission and purpose is as strong as my own.
We will continue to stay in touch, sharing our insights and offering forward-looking guidance to help you navigate through the crisis. Nuveen’s Global Investment Committee advises maintaining investment plans in line with long-term goals while looking to rebalance opportunistically and making greater use of differentiated returns from alternative asset classes to protect portfolios and position for opportunities on the other side.
While I of course don’t know when our lives will return to normal, I believe that together we will persevere. And I promise Nuveen will continue to pursue our purpose on your behalf.
I wish all of you and your families, friends and loved ones safety and health.
