Nuveen strengthens its Real Assets platform with the launch of Nuveen Natural Capital and Nuveen Infrastructure

Nuveen Natural Capital

Nuveen, a premier global asset manager, is enhancing its Real Assets platform, by bringing together its private real asset capabilities and launching two new business units, to create a more streamlined proposition as investors seek to increase exposure to real assets and alternatives1.

According to research1 conducted by Nuveen, over two thirds of institutional investors are planning to increase allocation to infrastructure, natural resources investments and other alternative assets, as they seek to reduce climate-related financial risk exposure and align portfolios with the transition to a sustainable low-carbon economy.

The newly structured Nuveen Real Assets platform will consist of capabilities in real estate, farmland, infrastructure, timberland, agribusiness, and commodities. These will be organised under three core pillars, including two newly launched units: Nuveen Natural Capital and Nuveen Infrastructure. These two pillars will sit alongside Nuveen Real Estate, and will be enhanced by targeted and complementary capabilities across Nuveen’s Private Impact and Commodities segments.

Commenting on the new offerings, Nuveen CEO of Real Assets, Mike Sales said:

"We’re hugely excited to be enhancing our Real Assets proposition, which will include bringing expertise together to create the newly launched Nuveen Infrastructure and Nuveen Natural Capital businesses. Investor demand for real assets is increasing at an extraordinary pace and by bringing together our unrivalled expertise in alternatives, we will be better positioned to respond to meet growing global investor demand for long-term sustainably managed investments. The strengthening of the platform represents the next step in our evolution in becoming the leading land-based asset manager, investing in a sustainable way for the enduring benefit of our clients and society." 

Nuveen is one of the world’s largest managers of real assets, managing $150 billion in assets under management for global investors. Under the leadership of Mike Sales, CEO of Real Assets, the enhanced platform will launch in January 2022.
