Research With Conviction


At TIAA-CREF, our expertise in the equity markets is rooted in our Global Equity Research team. This team of approximately 40 industry analysts and more than 10 research associates watch their industries, conduct deep research, interact with company management teams and feed that information to the TIAA-CREF portfolio management team to make informed investment decisions.

The Global Equity Research team services all of the portfolio managers as opposed to the more traditional model where analysts are dedicated to one product or one portfolio manager. TIAA-CREF has a dual track career path and what this means is that analysts and portfolio managers are very much peers.
