Nuveen Asset Management Winner
Managing fixed-income allocations became especially challenging in 2017 for asset owners, given the volatility of interest rates over the year. The team at Nuveen Asset Management stood out for its forward-looking, holistic, and actionable insights into markets.

A diversity of viewpoints is key in accomplishing this, and the team combines insights from many voices in the organization, including the Fixed-Income Strategy Committee, Sector Teams, and the Lead Portfolio Manager. The senior team is deeply experienced and has worked together for more than a decade.

Nuveen was recognized for its rigorous, research-driven approach when analyzing key factors such as fundamentals, technicals, and valuation. At the same time, the firm is flexible and opportunistic in its implementation.

Recognizing that no sector and style will outperform in all markets, the firm is flexible when analyzing drivers of returns such as sector rotation, security selection, and yield curve management. The firm is noted for implementing with conviction after analysis.
