The International Equity investment strategy seeks long-term total returns, primarily through capital appreciation, that outperform the MSCI® EAFE® Index.
The portfolio management team seeks to invest in best-in-class non-U.S. companies whose stock prices do not reflect their intrinsic value. The team adheres to the theory that best-in-class companies have the potential, within two to five years, to realize their true value and provide significant returns.
The portfolio management team relies on fundamental, bottom-up research, supported by the resources and expertise of the TIAA-CREF equity research team of approximately 40 global sector specialists, and complements that with quantitative analysis that includes meetings with company management teams to gain insights into the depth and quality of leadership, business strategies, and growth opportunities.
International Equity portfolios are subject to certain risks such as market and investment style risk. Investing in non-U.S. markets involves certain additional risks, including currency fluctuations and controls, restrictions on foreign investments, less governmental supervision and regulation, less liquidity, and the potential for market volatility and political instability.
