Impact 2022-2023 Nuveen private equity impact report
Explore our 2022-2023 private equity impact report where we provide detailed case studies on how we are measuring impact at our portfolio companies, and why we view climate change and inequality as inextricably linked factors within our investment approach.
Alternatives Private Capital: Four themes for '24
2023 was characterized by several key themes in the capital markets: the U.S. Federal Reserve’s battle against inflation; the resulting impact on issuers of higher-for-longer interest rates; a much slower pace of merger and acquisition activity as buyers and sellers dealt with mounting borrowing costs, valuation discrepancies and choppier portfolio performance and the steady disintermediation of buyout financings from public to private credit.
Alternatives
The Nuveen Private Equity Impact team seeks to address the defining global challenges of our time — climate change and inequality — by investing in businesses that drive an inclusive transition to a low carbon economy to drive attractive risk adjusted returns for our investors.

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.

Investors should be aware that alternative investments are speculative, subject to substantial risks including the risks associated with limited liquidity, the potential use of leverage, potential short sales and concentrated investments and may involve complex tax structures and investment strategies. Alternative investments may be illiquid, there may be no liquid secondary market or ready purchasers for such securities, they may not be required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors, there may be delays in distributing tax information to investors, they are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as other types of pooled investment vehicles, and they may be subject to high fees and expenses, which will reduce profits.

Private Capital, like alternative investments are not suitable for all investors given they are speculative, subject to substantial risks including the risks associated with limited liquidity, the potential use of leverage, potential short sales, concentrated investments and may involve complex tax structures and investment strategies.
