Core/core+ direct infrastructure
Principal investing in private equity investments in direct infrastructure, joint ventures, co-investments and LP fund commitments on behalf of Nuveen’s parent company balance sheet.

Listed infrastructure
Nuveen’s listed global infrastructure strategy seeks growth opportunity from global economic development by investing in U.S. and non-U.S. infrastructure companies that own or operate vital structures, facilities, and services.

Access infrastructure growth: The investment team invests in a diverse portfolio of global infrastructure companies often overlooked in the marketplace.

Diversify to help manage risk: Specialty asset classes like infrastructure that exhibit defensive characteristics can help combat volatility.

Total return focus: Emphasis on attractively valued infrastructure with typically stable cash flows may provide steady income and growth opportunity.

Agriculture infrastructure
Managed by AGR Partners, Nuveen’s agribusiness investment specialist, the agriculture infrastructure strategy targets asset heavy, infrastructure-like opportunities in the agribusiness sector that 1) provide a critical product or service in the food value chain and serve a basic economic need; 2) are fixed-asset intensive where a high percent of the company’s valuation is based on PPE or contractual agreements; 3) offer risk-mitigating attributes, such as significant barrier to entry; and 4) have strong ESG drivers.

The strategy targets investments with stable return profiles and a focus on current income.

Global farmland
Nuveen’s farmland investment specialist, Westchester Group Investment Management, is the largest manager of farmland globally. Westchester manages a diversified global portfolio of high-quality agricultural assets with the potential to benefit from both macro and local dynamics.
