*Any guarantees under annuities issued by Teachers Insurance Annuity Association of America (“TIAA”) are subject to its claims-paying ability. TIAA Traditional is a guaranteed insurance contract and not an investment for federal securities law purposes. Payments under CREF and the TIAA Real Estate Account are variable and will rise or fall based on investment performance. The TIAA Real Estate Account is a portfolio that has a direct investment exposure to commercial real estate. Returns are derived from properties appreciating in value and rental income and will generally be more fixed income-like.
**The TIAA Stable fund is only available for University contributions to the Syracuse University Noncontributory Retirement Plan (101201).
*+The TIAA-CREF Real Estate Securities Fund is a mutual fund which invests primarily in real estate investment trusts (REITs). The volatility of this fund is equity-like and therefore significantly higher than the TIAA Real Estate Account.
