Asset Management

The Large-Cap Value investment strategy seeks to generate long-term total returns that outpace those of its benchmark, the Russell 1000® Value Index.

The portfolio management team seeks to invest in undervalued companies that are temporarily out of favor and in the process of restructuring or recovering growth opportunities. Quantitative and fundamental analysis techniques are used, as well as research from the TIAA-CREF equity research team, which helps the investment team determine a company's intrinsic value and future profitability. The team also looks for the presence of positive, near-term catalysts, such as cyclical or management restructuring events, that will create the potential for future price appreciation.

The portfolio management team believes that a long-term, contrarian view enables them to identify temporarily undervalued large capitalization securities before they are recognized by the broader market.
