Nuveen Real Estate
Nuveen Real Estate, a TIAA company, is one of the largest investment managers in the world with $131 billion of assets under management. Nuveen Real Estate adopts the Tomorrow’s World approach, a philosophy that sits at the core of their investment process and business operations: “Investing in Tomorrow’s World for the enduring benefit of clients and society”. The Nuveen Real Estate sustainability strategy analyzes major disrupters shaping the future of real estate and is integrated into our broader investment approach to manage ESG risks and capitalize on opportunities throughout the investment process.
Over the last few years health and wellness has become a growing focal point among Nuveen Real Estate’s sustainability strategies for both owner-occupied and managed assets. Establishing the firm as a Fitwel Champion formalizes this approach and certifies the company’s commitment to optimizing workplaces for wellness and safety. Nuveen Real Estate has committed to certifying eight U.S. offices, including TIAA’s New York City headquarters as their first tranche.
“Nuveen and TIAA understand the importance of investing in spaces that provide safe, productive environments for our employees and tenants,” Chad Phillips, Head of the Office Sector and Portfolio Manager for the Americas at Nuveen. “Making these investments now, especially as we consider how to safely reopen offices following the COVID-19 pandemic, not only supports our building occupants, but also protects and enhances the value of our investments on behalf of our clients.”
