TIAA-CREF offers its investors access to a range of investments that span equity, fixed-income, target-date, real estate and alternative investments.1

Assets Under Management 

Equity Portfolios

With over 60 years of experience, we’ve refined a disciplined, rigorous process to identify what we believe to be the best investment opportunities. We employ actively managed, quantitatively managed and indexed equity strategies across a variety of styles, which we’ve refined over our long history to provide clients with a broad range of portfolios to meet their needs.

Fixed-Income Portfolios

We started as a fixed-income investor in 1918. Today, we are one of the top 10 managers of U.S. institutional tax-exempt assets based on assets under management.3 We offer a myriad of fixed-income portfolios that invest in a wide range of bonds: corporate bonds, government bonds and structured securities, as well as niche strategies.

Target Date Portfolios

The TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Funds4 are age-appropriate, professionally managed asset allocation portfolios that automatically adjust over time. Our Lifecycle Funds are based on our unique experience of managing the retirement assets of nearly four million individuals through all kinds of markets. We focus on the goal of providing our investors with income that lasts longer during their retirement years to help them meet more of their goals for the future.

Asset Allocation Portfolios

We have 60 years of asset allocation experience, which we draw upon every day when managing our Lifestyle Funds. By investing in other TIAA-CREF Funds, our Lifestyle Funds cover the risk/reward spectrum and range from conservative to aggressive. This allows us to better meet the needs of all our investors, no matter what their risk tolerance and individual needs might be.

Alternative Investing

Alternative Investments at TIAA-CREF include natural resource and infrastructure, private equity and private placements. For example, we have a program focused on identifying and investing in areas for sustainable growth, like agriculture.1

We seek to produce long-term, risk-adjusted returns with our agriculture portfolio by encouraging our employees to work with local farmers and operators in the U.S., Australia, Brazil, and Eastern Europe to implement state-of-the-art technology and sustainable farming practices.

Our forward-thinking philosophy has led us to be one of the largest institutional owners of farmland in the world.
