Nuveen, the operating division of TIAA Global Asset Management, is rolling out a new online client service tool to make it easier for advisors to access alternative investments.
In a new partnership with Artivest, Nuveen is introducing a technology-based alternatives platform to registered investment advisors, family offices, private banks and other advisors serving qualified high net worth investors.
Advisors can use the Artivest technology to allocate alternatives across client portfolios and access institutional-quality strategies. Client onboarding, investing and onboarding is done online, and advisors can access educational and marketing materials, documentation and documentary videos. An advisor dashboard includes tools for monitoring investment activity, and the platform also includes a full-service support team.
Nuveen sees alternatives playing an increasingly important role in building portfolios for high net worth investors. Mike Perry, Nuveen’s managing director and head of alternative investments, said the partnership with Artivest is proof of his company’s commitment to improving access to alternative investments.
Nuveen and TIAA’s suite of alternative investment products comprise more than $140 billion in assets, as of March 31, spanning real estate, agriculture, infrastructure, timber and private equity, as well as credit-based, long/short and special sector strategies.
