TIAA Real Estate Account Video Transcript Think about how you're building your retirement savings. After you lay the foundation, you may start to look at how you can build up and add to your portfolio. With TIAA, you have the opportunity to use a strategy that's usually not available in retirement plans: direct investment exposure to commercial real estate. The TIAA Real Estate Account is one of the only investment options available that gives you direct investment exposure to United States commercial real estate. Its performance is primarily tied directly to real estate markets. For a quick comparison, REIT mutual funds invest primarily in stocks of real estate investment trusts, known as REITs. Their performance, therefore, is tied to fluctuations in the stock market. TIAA is one of the largest real estate investment managers in the world with decades of experience buying, managing, and selling real estate. The Real Estate Account may help you diversify your portfolio. Returns are largely unaffected by stock market movements, they're generated by rental income and changes in property values. You can transfer or withdraw some or all of your accumulation in the Account at any time during your working years. And, because it's a variable annuity, you can turn some or all of your retirement savings into retirement income you can't outlive when you stop working. The Account's focus on income-producing properties historically has helped smooth out the ups and downs of real estate markets and can help provide diversification. Consider how the TIAA Real Estate Account may help balance your portfolio......and help you set the foundation for the kind of retirement you want. You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. Please call 877-518-9161 or log in to TIAA.org for current product and fund prospectuses that contain this and other information.
