Jul 26 2017 | 7:28pm ET

Global investment management giant Nuveen has named former UBS Asset Management executive Frank van Etten as the company’s chief investment officer for multi-asset solutions. 

In his new role, van Etten will be responsible for delivering multi-asset solutions to clients through advice, packaged investment capabilities and custom mandates, the company said in a statement. He will report to Margo Cook, president of Nuveen Advisory Services, and will be based in New York.

Van Etten joins Nuveen from UBS Asset Management, where he was most recently co-head of portfolio management investment solutions and led a global investment team responsible for the performance of multi-asset strategies and solutions. Prior to joining UBS, he was deputy CIO for multi-asset strategies and solutions at Voya Investment Management. He began his career at ING Investment Management, where he held a variety of investment-related roles.

“Frank van Etten has a strong and consistent record of success in building global investment capabilities,” said Cook in the statement. “His hire and the development of an advisory led, multi-asset approach to helping our clients produce specific outcomes are critical inflection points for Nuveen and our mission to better serve investors everywhere.”

Nuveen is the investment management business of TIAA. The company has $906 billion in assets under management as of March 31, 2017, $185 billion of which are deployed in alternative strategies.
