TIAA-CREF for Advisors Who Work with Institutions


Why work with TIAA-CREF?

TIAA-CREF is committed to supporting your business efforts by helping you deliver the best retirement programs and investment products to your clients. For nearly 100 years, we have partnered with more non-profit institutions than any other company to help guide their employees to security in retirement. In 2012, we paid more than $12 billion in retirement income and other disbursements to 700,000 participants1.

At TIAA-CREF, we believe the most important metric of a plan’s success is the ability of its participants to replace a comfortable level of their income when they retire. Our unique consultative approach incorporates four key elements to achieving retirement readiness: plan design, investment platform, employee engagement and plan management. Our experience has shown this combination to drive some of the best employee outcomes, as evidenced by our replacement income levels, which are among the highest in the industry.
