Nuveen Investments has added equities veteran Bob Doll to its asset management team. Doll, who officially begins work today, reports to Nuveen Asset Management’s head of equities, David Chalupnik.
As the Chicago firm's new chief equity strategist, the former BlackRock chief equity strategist will provide equity market analysis and commentary for advisors.
Doll, who also headed up the US large cap series equity team for BlackRock, will also serve as senior portfolio manager to strengthen Nuveen Asset Management's multi-asset-class platform and fundamental equity investments capabilities.
“Today, uncertainty remains the reality across the markets, yet opportunities continue to emerge — and investors and their advisors need to seize them," stated Doll.
"More than ever, investors, both individual and institutional, urgently need calm, reasoned analysis and guidance — as well as smartly configured investment products — to chart and maintain the right path throughout the global markets."
Before Nuveen and BlackRock, Doll served as president and chief investment officer at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, also serving as senior portfolio manager of the Merrill Lynch Large Cap Series Funds. Prior to that, he was chief investment officer of Oppenheimer Funds.
