If you're comfortable researching and selecting your own investments, we provide you access to tools and resources used by our very own professionals to help you make decisions.
For experienced investors who are confident researching investments and placing trades, TIAA-CREF Brokerage Services gives you:
1 Morningstar ratings based on the lowest cost share class for each mutual fund, based on U.S. open end mutual funds; CREF Variable Accounts; and the Life Funds. For a fund or account with multiple share classes and the same pricing, the share class with the longest performance history is used. Please note Morningstar rates CREF group variable annuities within the open end mutual fund universe. Morningstar ratings may be higher or lower on a monthly basis. Morningstar is an independent service that rates mutual funds. The top 10% of funds or accounts in an investment category receive five stars, the next 22.5% receive four stars and the next 35% receive three stars. Morningstar proprietary ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance and can change every month. They are calculated from the fund or account’s three-, five- and ten-year average annual returns in excess of 90-day Treasury bill returns with appropriate fee adjustments, and a risk factor that reflects fund or account performance below 90-day T-bill returns. The overall star ratings are Morningstar’s published ratings, which are weighted averages of its three-, five- and ten-year ratings for periods ended March 31, 2015. Past performance cannot guarantee future results. For current performance and rankings, please visit www.tiaa-cref.org/public/tcfpi/InvestResearch .
