A Word on Risk

Investing entails risk and there can be no assurance that any investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Equity investments involve market risk or the risk that stocks will decline in response to such factors as adverse company news or industry developments or a general economic decline. Bonds and other fixed-income securities involve interest rate risk, credit risk and market risk.

Investors should carefully consider their risk tolerance before investing. As with all mutual fund investments, possible loss of principal is also a risk. There can be no assurance that any of the funds will achieve their objectives.

The Nuveen Family of Funds and the TIAA-CREF Funds are distinct fund families that comprise 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.

Nuveen provides innovative investment strategies and portfolio management services through its independent investment affiliates: Nuveen Asset Management, TIAA Investments, Symphony Asset Management, NWQ Investment Management Company, Santa Barbara Asset Management, Winslow Capital Management, AGR Partners, Churchill Asset Management, GreenWood Resources Capital Management, Gresham Investment Management, TH Real Estate, and Westchester Agriculture Asset Management.

Securities offered through Nuveen Securities, LLC, Member FINRA and SIPC.
