We Invest to Help Pay the Cost of Pension Benefits Today and Tomorrow

We are global investors with expertise in all corners of the investment universe. But no matter where we invest, one goal is paramount: increase the value of the plan's assets to help Teachers' meet its long-term funding needs.  To achieve our objective, we employ investment strategies that are honed by years of practical experience as responsible investors.

We report investment progress publicly on an annual basis following the end of each calendar year. Our most recent annual report  was for the year ended December 31, 2013.
