“José is responsible for Nuveen’s vision, strategy and day-to-day operations. He and his leadership team set and execute key growth initiatives and provide oversight of all investment management teams and client businesses,” is pointed out through his LinkedIn profile.

Minaya, who has a BA in Finance from Manhattan College and an MBA from Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business, has more than 28 years of investment experience, including his time at AIG Global Investment Group, where he helped drive emerging market equity trading, and the investment banking groups at Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan, where his responsibilities included mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions.

He is currently a member of several boards, including the Robert Toigo Foundation, the National Forestry Foundation, the Dartmouth Tuck School MBA Advisory Council (Chair), as well as the Institute of Investment Companies.

“José’s extensive experience with strategic investing across a variety of asset classes, as well as his impressive tenure guiding one of the world’s largest asset management companies through a series of unprecedented challenges, exemplify the valuable perspective he will bring to Moody’s Board of Directors,” added McDaniel.
