For Nuveen Investments of Chicago, it's been a long, evolutionary journey through the world of money management. That voyage has transformed the firm from a small niche municipal bond player into a broad-based, multi-disciplinary equity, fixed-income and alternative investment management force to be reckoned with. Nuveen is 80% owned by The St. Paul Companies of St. Paul, Minn.

Nuveen's 105-year history of success has brought it to its current standing as the third-largest, and one of the most respected, asset management separate account consultant program providers in the U.S. As of March 31, Nuveen had $19.3 billion in consultant program assets, pushing it slightly ahead of Brandes Investment Partners, with $18.6 billion in assets, and Lord Abbett & Co. with $12.7 billion, according to Cerulli Associates of Boston.
