Featured TIAA-CREF Funds
The award-winning TIAA-CREF Family of Funds is now available through Nuveen.
* Prior to its reorganization into the NWQ Global Equity Income Fund on March 24, 2017, the fund was known as the Nuveen Tradewinds Value Opportunities Fund.
The Nuveen Family of Funds and the TIAA-CREF Funds are distinct fund families that are comprised of different investment products, each with its own features, terms and conditions, fee structures and risk factors. Please note, there are no exchange privileges between the two fund families. The Lipper Award is given to the group with the lowest average decile ranking of three years' Consistent Return for eligible funds over the three-year period ended 11/30/13, 11/30/14, 11/30/15 and 11/30/16 respectively. TIAA was ranked among 36 fund companies in 2012, 48 fund companies in 2013 and 2014, and 37 fund companies in 2015 and 2016 with at least five equity, five bond, or three mixed-asset portfolios. Classification averages are calculated with all eligible share classes for each eligible classification. The calculation periods extend over 36, 60, and 120 months. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value within each eligible classification determines the fund classification winner over three, five, or ten years.
