Inclusion, diversity and equity at Nuveen

Representation at Nuveen


We firmly believe that more inclusive, diverse workforces enable better innovation and problem-solving, with a tangible impact on long-term financial performance. We are also committed to transparency in our relationships with our clients, colleagues and partners. The representation data shown below, collected as part of our internal Self-ID campaign, provides key insights into the demographic composition of our workforce. We use this information to strengthen and advance our inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) efforts through our hiring practices, internal talent development efforts and client interactions and external partnerships focused on building an inclusive and diverse workforce.

Recruiting diverse talent


We’re increasing diversity across our firm through deliberate actions within early talent, mid-career and executive recruiting efforts. Our early talent rotational program attracts and develops talent through partnerships with organizations, youth education programs and diversity associations around the globe.

A driving force in our mid-career recruiting comes from Nuveen’s Roger W. Ferguson, Jr. MBA Fellowship Program . The fellowship partners with leading MBA programs and professional diversity development associations to provide an on-ramp for outstanding scholars from backgrounds that have been historically under-represented in the financial services industry.

Our executive recruiting efforts focus on networking and speaking engagements through partnerships with professional societies and organizations. We are also involved in Nuveen’s industry-influencing LEAD events, as well as many networking programs that we host and co-host with our partners to seek out executive-level leaders.

Community engagement

Our associates help bring our purpose to life, positively impacting the communities where we live and work around the globe.
 
Business Resource Groups

Nuveen Business Resource Groups (BRGs) provide a platform for associates to unite and share cultural, social and gender-related identities and experiences. BRGs are an invaluable asset for employees looking to find camaraderie, spread awareness and strengthen professional networks across our organization. Our BRGs are open to anyone at Nuveen interested in learning about diversity dimensions — not just those who identify with a specific group's focus.
Be the change

Launched in the summer of 2020, Be the Change is our organizational platform calling for a sustained focus on social justice. Starting with our leadership, we’ve encouraged every associate across the enterprise to take action against racial injustice and to support communities in need. Associate participation has been unprecedented, coming to life through our enterprise-wide Race Against Racism, our Summer of Service community digital access engagement program for those in need, and through other tutoring and volunteer opportunities.

Equity Collective

We’re a founding member of Morgan Stanley’s Equity Collective Initiative, an industry leading group of investment managers who’ve joined forces to educate, empower and develop the next generation of diverse leaders in the financial services industry. Through this multi-year commitment, we’re actively engaging with Boys and Girls Club of America and Team IMPACT, two nonprofit organizations that work with underserved minority youth and young adults across the U.S. on career readiness and leadership skills.

Project Destined

We’ve partnered with Project Destined, a national social impact platform providing knowledge and skills to high school students from underserved communities who aspire to pursue careers in real estate. By focusing on business education and skill development, the partnership gives students access to the experience and expertise of Nuveen’s real estate investment professionals as they explore pathways to future careers.

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.
