The Mid-Cap Value investment strategy seeks to generate long-term total returns that outpace those of its benchmark, the Russell Midcap Value Index.
The portfolio management team seeks to invest in undervalued companies and uncover positive catalysts for price appreciation, which may close the gap between a stock’s current valuation and the team’s assessment of its true intrinsic value.
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, to focus on companies that trade at a discount to their underlying intrinsic value, possess financial flexibility and strength, and contain catalysts for price appreciation.
Mid-Cap Value portfolios are subject to certain risks such as market and investment style risk. Investments in small- to medium-sized corporations are more vulnerable to financial risks and other risks than larger corporations and may involve a higher degree of price volatility than investments in the general equity markets.
