Investment process

Integrated research platform combines fundamental and quantitative analysis to identify companies with attractive fundamentals, valuations and catalysts. Portfolio managers evaluate high conviction investment ideas from both disciplines for inclusion, and a bottom-up, stock-driven approach considers the risk/reward trade-off to construct the portfolio within risk parameters. Holdings are actively monitored to ensure the investment thesis remains intact.

A separately managed account (SMA) is a private portfolio of actively managed, individual securities that may be customized to achieve an individual investor's unique objectives.

SMA accounts typically require a minimum investment of $100,000 for equity and asset allocation strategies and $250,000 for fixed income strategies, although the specific minimum account size varies by program and may be subject to change. The manager may waive these minimums based on client type, asset class, pre-existing relationship with client and other factors. For certain accounts, a negotiated minimum annual fee applies. Please consult with your Nuveen Advisor Consultant for applicable minimums.

A word on risk All investments carry a certain degree of risk and it is important to review investment objectives, risk tolerance, tax liability and liquidity needs before choosing an investment style or manager. Growth style investing may fall out of favor and underperform other equity investments during given periods. Certain sectors or growth stocks may shift characteristics over a long market cycle and may not perform in line with stated benchmarks. Use of models and analytical, quantitative and risk management tools and techniques is no guarantee of investment success or positive performance. These models are dynamic and as a result, the variables or factors or components may change over time. Models are based on historical data, which is not indicative of future results. Other tools may produce substantially different success and failure outcomes.
