Nuveen, an asset management-focused firm, has recently announced the appointment of Nick Moss as the Head of Nature Based Solutions.
According to ESG Today, Moss will spearhead NNC’s commitment to environmental stewardship through investments in farmland, forestry, and ecological restoration.
Nuveen stands as a leader in investment management, particularly through its Nuveen Natural Capital division. This arm is dedicated to leveraging investments in land-based assets, emphasizing the amalgamation of profitability with environmental sustainability. Their strategy includes the reduction of environmental impacts and carbon footprint in commercial production while restoring and preserving natural habitats.
Nick Moss, the newly appointed Head of Nature Based Solutions at NNC, brings a wealth of experience spanning over 15 years in investment and advisory services related to forestry, agriculture, and climate finance. His role will encompass the strategic development and execution of NNC’s initiatives in nature-based solutions, focusing on sustainable and efficient management of assets.
Moss’s illustrious career includes pivotal roles in significant environmental projects. Before joining Nuveen, he was instrumental in the AGRI3 strategy’s design and delivery, an initiative by Rabobank and UNEP, which aimed at mobilizing $1bn for sustainable agriculture and forest conservation. His expertise extends across diverse geographies, including Latin America, Asia, and Africa, enhancing his capability to drive NNC’s global initiatives.
Nuveen Natural Capital was launched last year as a part of Nuveen’s Real Assets platform. Currently, the unit manages an impressive portfolio of $12.4bn in assets, spanning over three million acres across 10 countries. This appointment marks a significant milestone in Nuveen’s ongoing expansion and commitment to real assets and sustainable investment solutions.
Skye Macpherson, Global Head of Asset Management at Nuveen, commented, “Nick has a wealth of experience within natural capital investments and strong relationships with business, financial institutions, donors, governments and development finance institutions. He will play a pivotal role in continuing to grow our natural capital and nature-based solutions offering, and providing the technical expertise to manage our holdings efficiently, sustainably and to the highest standards.”
Nick Moss added, “As interest in real assets continues to grow, Nuveen is well positioned to offer a broad range of specialised investments to investors grounded by a long-term and sustainable investment philosophy that seeks to offer investors access to alpha-driven strategies.”
