Nuveen has recruited Nick Moss as its head of nature based solutions.
Moss will work within the asset manager’s natural capital branch, and will focus on investments across farmland, forestry, and ecological restoration. Specifically, he will have the role of environmental impact reduction and habitat restoration.
Before his role at Nuveen, Moss spent four years as the managing director of AGRI3 fund, where he led the design, fundraising, and organization of the forest conservation and sustainable agriculture fund. In total, he holds 15 years of experience in the industry, also working at Adam Smith International and PwC.
Skye Macpherson, global head of asset management, said: “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.”
As of the end of September, Nuveen held $1.1trn (£900m) in assets under management.
“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,” Moss said.
