Growth in Global Markets


TIAA-CREF has been investing in equities for over 60 years and international markets since 1972. With over $180 billion in equity assets under management1, TIAA-CREF’s approach has evolved to reflect the global nature of markets and industries.

Today, business is global. Companies are going global and it’s important to look at markets from a global perspective in order to spot trends and find growth areas. With the current growth in international markets right now, we want to be able to capture some of that growth. And, being globally diversified can also mean potentially less risk on the portfolio side.

“Globalization plays a major role in how we view markets. Twenty years ago, the focus was on the US. Today the US remains a main player, if not the main player, but other countries have entered into the picture.”
