About Shusaku

Shu is a director at Nuveen Real Estate responsible for evaluating, structuring and originating acquisitions across the Asia region, supporting the business in its aspirations to deploy significant capital into the region.

Shu joined the business in 2016 from JP Morgan Asset Management Pte Ltd’s Singapore office, where he was fund manager for its Tokyo Recovery Fund, a private real estate portfolio invested into the Tokyo office sector.
