TIAA-CREF Small Cap Blend Index Fund (TRBIX)

Product:  TIAA-CREF
Vendor:   TIAA

Investment Strategy

The fund seeks a favorable long-term total return, mainly through capital appreciation, by investing primarily in a portfolio of equity securities in smaller domestic companies based on a market index. It normally invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities within its benchmark index. The fund buys most, but not necessarily all, of the stocks within its benchmark, and will attempt to closely match the overall investment characteristics of this index.

Impact of Expenses and Fees

The table below assumes the investor invests $10,000 on the first day of year one and that the original investment earns a continuous 5% return. In addition, it assumes the investor reinvests all earnings, and makes no additional contributions. The 5% rate of return is hypothetical and used only to illustrate the respective impacts of different fee amounts on each investment. It is not intended to predict future investment returns.

Calculations are done by the 403bCompare site in an effort to provide a standardized comparison of the impact of all fees associated with an investment option. This includes all required 403(b) product-level fees, and investment-level fees. For more information on fees or expenses associated with a 403(b) product or investment option, please refer fees located in Help & Resources .
