Data used for the Portfolio Holdings and Portfolio Allocation Characteristics is from Bloomberg Finance L.P. Portfolio holdings are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell individual securities. Portfolio Holdings and Portfolio Allocation Characteristics are as of deposit day and are subject to change and may vary thereafter.

The style and capitalization characteristics are designed to help investors understand how they fit into an overall investment plan. Value, blend and growth are types of investment styles. Growth Investing generally seeks stocks that offer the potential for greater-than-average earnings growth, and may entail greater risk than value or blend investing. Value investing generally seeks stocks that may be sound investments but are temporarily out of favor in the marketplace, and may entail less risk than growth investing. A blend investment combines the two styles. Market capitalization is determined by the following criteria: Large Cap: Greater than $10 billion, Mid Cap: $2 billion-$10 billion, Small Cap: $250 million-$2 billion Micro Cap: Below $250 million.

This material is not intended to be a recommendation or investment advice, does not constitute a solicitation to buy or sell securities, and is not provided in a fiduciary capacity. The information provided does not take into account the specific objectives or circumstances of any particular investor, or suggest any specific course of action. Investment decisions should be made based on an investor’s objectives and circumstances and in consultation with his or her advisors.

Risk Considerations
Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. This Trust is unmanaged and there is no guarantee that the Trust’s investment objectives will be achieved. There is no assurance that common stocks will make dividend payments. Dividends are paid only if declared by an issuer's board of directors and the amount of any dividend may vary over time. The Environmental Social Governance (ESG) criteria used to select the Trust’s portfolio excludes securities of certain issuers for nonfinancial reasons, therefore the Trust may forgo certain market opportunities. There is no guarantee that the Trust’s underlying holdings will maintain ESG characteristics over the life of the Trust. Non-U.S. investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. The Trust invests in securities issued by companies operating in Europe and, therefore, is subject to certain risks associated specifically with Europe. European Union member states no longer control their own monetary policies and such control is exercised by the European Central Bank. Furthermore, recent events such as the United Kingdom’s vote to withdraw from the European Union, and the European sovereign debt crisis and related austerity measures in certain countries have had, and may continue to have, a significant negative impact on the economies of certain European countries and their future economic outlooks. A portfolio concentrated in a single market sector may present more risk than a portfolio broadly diversified over several sectors. This Trust is concentrated in the consumer products sector. Some of the general risks of companies in the consumer products sector include cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, product liability litigation and increased government regulation. Stocks of mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies as a result of several factors such as limited trading volumes, products or financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information. These and other risk considerations, such as various business, market, and investment risks are described in detail in the Trust’s prospectus. 
Teachers Advisors, Inc., a registered investment adviser and affiliate of TIAA Global Asset Management LLC, serves as the portfolio consultant responsible for recommending a portfolio of securities for the Trust. The Trust’s sponsor is Nuveen Securities, LLC, a subsidiary of Nuveen, LLC and a registered broker-dealer. Nuveen, LLC is an operating division of TIAA Global Asset Management LLC.
