Nuveen Real Estate

Nuveen Real Estate is one of the largest investment managers in the world with $155 billion of assets under management*. With over 85 years of real estate investing experience and more than 775 employees* located in over 30 cities throughout the world, our platform offers unparalleled geographic reach, which is married with deep sector expertise and a long history of prioritising responsible investing.
Our tomorrow’s world approach, a philosophy that sits at the core of our investment process and business operations, informs our long-term view of real estate investments for the enduring benefit of both clients and society. It goes beyond incorporating sustainability factors into our analysis. It embraces the structural changes that the real estate industry and society face. The three main disruptors that are shaping the future of real estate are people, sustainability and technology. We believe structural changes present significant opportunities to create and protect value, and the key to capitalising on these is to have a deep understanding of these disruptors and their effects.
To bring our tomorrow’s world vision to life, Nuveen Real Estate has developed a smart sustainable building blueprint (SSBB) for the different real estate sectors it invests in. Each sector-specific SSBB takes into account the three key drivers of change in tomorrow’s world: sustainability, technology and people.
