The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history. For investments with exceptional performance, please note that performance fluctuates and currently may be lower than noted here.

Mutual Fund and Variable Annuities are investment products. Please consult a TIAA-CREF advisor before deciding whether a Variable Annuity or Mutual Fund is appropriate for meeting your investment needs.

Investment Risk 
Standard Deviation (3-year annualized) measures an investment's past volatility, based on a sample. The higher the standard deviation, the higher the volatility. It is not a measure of performance and should not be considered relative to an investment's annual returns. Please note that past standard deviation is not a predictor of future volatility or risk.

R-Squared (3-year) measures how much of a portfolio’s performance can be explained by the returns from the overall market (or benchmark index). If a portfolio’s total return precisely matched that of the overall market or benchmark, its R squared would be 1.00. If a portfolio’s return bore no relationship to the market’s returns, its R squared would be 0.

Beta (3-year) measures the magnitude of a portfolio’s past share-price fluctuations in relation to the ups and downs of the overall market (or appropriate market index). If a security has a beta greater than 1, that security’s price can be expected to be more volatile than the market.

Sharpe Ratio (3 Yr) is a measure of the excess return per unit of risk in an investment asset. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the return. Excess return is the rate of return above and beyond the risk-free rate, which is usually the T-bill rate, or in excess of a market measure, such as an index fund.

STRATEGY

The fund seeks high current income and, when consistent with its primary objective, capital appreciation. It typically invests at least 80% of its assets in lower-rated, higher-yielding fixed-income securities, such as domestic and foreign corporate bonds, debentures, loan participations and notes, as well as convertible securities and preferred stocks. The fund's investment adviser attempts to minimize the risks of investing in lower-rated securities by conducting its own credit analysis and constructing a portfolio of securities diversified by industry, maturity, duration and credit quality. Under certain market conditions, the fund may sacrifice potential yield in an effort to adopt a defensive posture designed to preserve capital. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in securities of foreign issuers, including emerging markets.

SHARE CLASS

Retirement Class

STRATEGY

The Lifestyle Aggressive Growth Fund seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund will pursue this goal through a "fund of funds" approach, whereby it will make investments in Institutional Class shares of other TIAA-CREF Funds. The fund is designed for investors seeking long-term growth of capital through a relatively stable asset allocation strategy targeting an aggressive growth risk/return profile. It will generally seek to meet its objective by investing approximately 100% of its assets in underlying equity funds. The fund may deviate from this target allocation by up to 10% depending upon current market conditions and outlook. The fund may also invest in fixed-income underlying funds if the portfolio managers believe that market conditions warrant, such as when the managers believe that equity markets may decline. As a result of its investments in underlying funds, the Lifestyle Aggressive Growth Fund's returns will reflect investments across a mix of domestic and foreign equities of all capitalization sizes.

STRATEGY

The fund seeks a favorable long-term total return, mainly through capital appreciation, primarily from equity securities of large domestic companies. It normally invests at least 80% of its assets in large-cap equity securities that the fund's management team believes are undervalued based on an evaluation of their potential worth. The fund's management team uses a variety of comparative valuation criteria to determine whether a company might be undervalued, including numerous financial ratios such as stock price-to-book value, stock price-to-earnings and dividend yield. Particular emphasis is focused on companies with normalized earnings and high operating leverage. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in foreign securities.
