CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced it has extended its offerings to non-U.S. investors with the availability of a new UCITS fund focused on large cap core equities. The new fund is offered via Nuveen Global Investors Fund plc through a UCITS structure.
The new fund is managed by Nuveen Asset Management (NAM) LLC, a Nuveen investment affiliate recognized as a global investment manager with a broad investment platform. As a $130 billion multi-asset-class investment manager, NAM’s collaborative approach to portfolio construction is driven by integrated research and risk management processes.
The objective of the fund is to provide long-term capital appreciation through investments in large cap core equity securities. Led by respected portfolio manager and market strategist, Bob Doll, the portfolio management team will select securities using an investment process that combines quantitative, objective analysis with fundamental, research-based measures. Securities generally are added to the portfolio based both on the ranking given to a particular security by the multi-factor quantitative models used by the management team as well as the fundamental analysis of the securities.
