Asset Management

The Timber investment strategy is focused on achieving attractive risk-adjusted returns while building a globally diversified portfolio of high quality, sustainably managed timberlands that can be held over the long term.

TIAA-CREF’s Timberland Investment strategy seeks to capitalize on positive global market dynamics through a diversified portfolio of timberland assets located in productive growing areas with easy access to resilient markets. TIAA-CREF’s long history of timberland investment presents a well-defined strategy for capitalizing on attractive opportunities in the timber asset class. This allows us to respond to changing global opportunities, placing increased focus on investing in high growth international markets as well as integrating tree improvement science to enhance returns through our majority owned management platform, GreenWood Resources. Geographies of investment are selected to capture diverse end markets, species are balanced within the portfolio, and age classes are structured so that cash flows are potentially consistent.
