Nuveen Investments Associate, CPACE Transaction Management- Nuveen Green Capital in Newport Beach, California

Greenworks Lending is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuveen, one of the world’s leading Asset Managers. We finance clean energy retrofits and clean new construction on commercial building through an innovative program called C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy). C-PACE is a public-private financing mechanism through which private lenders provide low-cost, long-term funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation projects in commercial properties. C-PACE financing is repaid as an assessment on the property’s regular tax bill and processed the same way as other local public benefit assessments have been for decades. C-PACE is gaining traction among real estate owners and developers who are incorporating this specialty financing into their capital stacks.

The Associate plays a critical role in all aspects of project development, including the support of loan origination, transaction management, and underwriting. The Associate supports Greenworks Lending as it advances complex commercial projects through to completion.
