Bob Doll has joined Chigaco company Nuveen Asset Management just months after announcing his retirement and having recently left BlackRock.

Doll will serve as chief equity strategist and senior portfolio manager, reporting to Nuveen Asset Management head of equities, David Chalupnik.

Nuveen Asset Management President William Huffman says: “We are very pleased to welcome Bob to the team. He brings considerable experience and leadership in the large-cap equities space to our multi-asset-class investment platform.

“Bob joins us at an exciting time. The high quality of our portfolio management teams and diverse investment strategies have led to growing awareness among advisors and investors of the quality offerings they can expect from our firm.

“We look forward to building upon that identity, and to Bob contributing to the success of our multi-asset-class platform.”

At BlackRock, Doll served as chief equity strategist for fundamental equities and was head of the US large cap series equity team.

In an internal memo sent in June, Doll claimed although investing was a “passion” he was ready to move on to the “next chapter” and devote more time to “family, faith and philanthropic interests”.

Doll’s successor Russ Koesterich was unveiled as global chief investment strategist, earlier this month.
