Who’s Moving Where In Wealth Management? – Nuveen, Global Returns Project

The latest moves and appointments in wealth management roles in the UK, the rest of Europe, the Middle East and other select locations.

Nuveen, an investment manager, appointed this week Harry Bush as director, covering UK wealth clients, alongside Alex De Stefano.

Nuveen offers a range of solutions to wealth clients around the UK covering public and private markets including sustainable UCITS across a range of asset classes, such as fixed income and real assets, which have seen heightened investor interest in recent years, the firm said in a statement.

His appointment will provide added support to the firm's ambitions to grow its offering for private wealth clients across Europe, in line with similar appointments in Switzerland, Denmark and Sweden earlier this year.

He is joining from Allianz Global Investors where he was a director for the UK Wholesale market. Previously, he worked in business development and sales at Cambridge Associates and Neptune Investment Management.

Welcoming the move, Simon England Brammer, head of EMEA and APAC Global Client Group, said: “We are very happy to welcome Harry to Nuveen’s London office this week. His appointment demonstrates our latest commitment to growth in the European wealth market following the opening of our Swiss office earlier this year.”

“His experience and industry knowledge will be pivotal to further unlocking the UK market and we very much look forward to partnering with him to deliver the Nuveen platform across traditional and alternative capabilities to new and existing clients,” he continued. 

The Global Returns Project    
The Global Returns Project, an initiative helping investors, asset managers and businesses embrace regenerative finance, has appointed Mike Berners-Lee to join its advisory board. 

His appointment will strengthen the existing advisory board, which is responsible for helping shape the direction of the Global Returns Project, as it continues to bridge the gap between investment and direct regeneration of the planet, the firm said in a statement. He will assist with expanding the Global Returns Project’s strategy and outreach.

Berners-Lee, who specialises in carbon footprinting, will bring his expertise in the climate action sphere, the firm continued. 

He is a professor at Lancaster University, where his research includes supply chain carbon modelling, sustainable food systems and the environmental impact of ICT. 

Welcoming the move, Yan Swiderski, co-founder of the Global Returns Project, said: “We have been inspired by Mike’s research and leadership for many years now, and it’s an honour to have him officially involved with the Global Returns Project.”  

Berners-Lee added: “I have been working to tackle the Climate Emergency for many years, and it’s clear that a big systemic shift is needed. Initiatives like the Global Returns Project play a crucial role in supporting climate solutions beyond most market mechanisms and corporate sustainability strategies. I look forward to helping the Global Returns Project ensure that every financial strategy directly regenerates the planet.”

The Global Returns Project is a UK registered charity helping individuals, wealth managers, asset managers and businesses embrace truly regenerative finance.
