Incapital and Nuveen Asset Management Introduce New Equity Unit Trust

  • New Equity Unit Trust to Leverage Expertise of Respected Manager and Strategist Bob Doll
  • Offering Expected to Launch in Early 2014 

Incapital LLC and Nuveen Asset Management, two leading investment firms with a rich tradition of innovative product development, today announced that they have joined efforts to create and distribute a new unit trust portfolio designed to help individual investors reach their long-term investment objectives.  Incapital expects to launch this new unit trust offering in early 2014. 

The new offering will leverage Nuveen Asset Management's investment management expertise and Incapital’s extensive national distribution network and proprietary technology. The offering was developed in collaboration with Nuveen Asset Management’s respected Chief Equity Strategist and Senior Portfolio Manager Bob Doll. The unit trust portfolio will provide investors access to high-caliber strategies with a fixed basket of securities and a defined maturity, designed for investors willing to assume the risks of investing in equities. Throughout his 30-year career, Doll has been widely recognized by the industry for his investment expertise, market insights, and forward-looking themes.

“We expect the first series of unit trusts to be one of many innovative solutions to be offered by Incapital in partnership with Nuveen,” said Incapital CEO John Radtke.  “Over time, we will look to create and deliver a broad range of investment opportunities in multiple distribution channels. We are pleased to initiate our partnership with a unit trust designed for a market segment experiencing increased investor demand.”

"We are very excited to partner with Incapital to offer this new unit trust and highlight Bob Doll’s deep and respected expertise in equity investing,” said William T. Huffman, President of Nuveen Asset Management.  “Working together, we look forward to developing a series of unit trust offerings that draw from our multi-asset-class investment platform and that we believe will help secure the long-term goals of investors.”     

Total assets invested in unit trusts have grown substantially during the last four years, more than doubling to approximately $90 billion*. Financial advisors and investors alike are increasingly participating in new trusts designed to address custom strategies with exposure to global and domestic markets.
