2023 Global Insurance Survey – Nuveen EQuilibrium

featured image

Nuveen’s third-annual EQuilibrium study surveyed 800 global institutional investors, including nearly 200 insurance companies, to uncover new insights into how they expect to achieve their investment objectives. Strategic and tactical asset allocations are evolving, credit and duration continue to be in favor, and impact investing with balance sheet assets is here to stay.


Nuveen is the asset manager for TIAA, one of the world’s most highly rated insurance companies1. We leverage our deep expertise in partnering with insurance clients to tailor capital-efficient solutions to meet complex portfolio construction needs. Our platform of $1.1 trillion in AUM2 offers differentiated investments across private credit and private equity, real assets, fixed income, and responsible investing focused strategies.

*1. For its stability, claims-paying ability and overall financial strength, Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA) is a member of one of only three insurance groups in the United States to currently hold the highest rating available to U.S. insurers from three of the four leading insurance company rating agencies: A.M. Best (A++ as of 7/23), Fitch (AAA as of 8/23) and Standard & Poor's (AA+ as of 9/22), and the second highest possible rating from Moody’s Investors Service (Aa1 as of 7/23). There is no guarantee that current ratings will be maintained. The financial strength ratings represent a company’s ability to meet policyholders’ obligations and do not apply to variable annuities or any other product or service not fully backed by TIAA’s claims-paying ability. The ratings also do not apply to the safety or the performance of the variable accounts, which will fluctuate in value.
