Nanette Abuhoff Jacobson
Managing Director and Multi-Asset Strategist at Wellington Management Company and Global Investment Strategist for Hartford Funds
View full bio
With more than 25 years of experience in the capital markets, Nanette has held a variety of roles spanning the major asset classes. As the global investment strategist, she analyzes and interprets markets and investment opportunities for those mutual funds that are sub-advised by Wellington Management Company LLP, and shares those views with Hartford Funds’ sales organization, the financial-professional community, and major broker-dealers and distributors. She also advises Wellington Management's institutional clients, including pension funds, insurance companies, endowments and foundations, and central banks, consulting on strategic asset-allocation issues to develop multi-asset investment solutions.
5 Things About Nanette
When she isn’t talking about the capital markets, she is singing and playing guitar with New England Conservatory’s Continuing Ed jazz ensemble and performing for friends and family. She has eclectic tastes ranging from Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, and McCoy Tyner to Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and Yebba. She just bought a sonic blue Fender Stratocaster and is trying to hold the guitar lower than her chin as she hears that holding an electric guitar low looks a lot cooler! (Fun fact: Nanette sang in and appeared in the 1980 movie Fame!)
She is a Board member of The Brookline Community Mental Health Center and is on the Finance Committee that helps to fund the Center’s support of mental-health services at a local and national level. Mental-health issues have exploded since the pandemic, especially among kids. She is passionate about getting affordable mental-health services to those who need them.
Food is always top of mind for Nanette. She loves to cook, eat, and entertain. Her favorite crowd-pleasers are a layered tuna tartare-avocado app or a bubbling hot, cheesy spinach-artichoke dip.
She loves to spend time with her husband of 25 years and their boys, ages 19 and 22. Exercise and meditation are also core to daily life. Tennis is her first love followed by cycling, weight-lifting, and anything cardio! Meditation is more aspirational, but she believes following some of the Eastern spiritual practices can bring greater inner peace and happiness.
People often say creativity and analytical skills use different halves of the brain. Not for Nanette. Her ability and desire to connect with people through music or by helping financial professionals understand the interaction between the economy and markets, and how best to position client portfolios is what makes her tick.
