Every year Thomson Reuters Lipper awards mutual funds and fund families for best consistent risk-adjusted performance over three, five and 10 years.
This year TIAA was the big winner in the 2018 Group Award category, winning for best overall large fund company and best mixed assets large fund company.
It was the firm’s sixth consecutive win for best overall large fund company and third consecutive win for best mixed assets large fund group, the latter due in large part to the performance of its TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Fund and Lifecycle Index Fund Series.
TIAA Investments is the largest of 12 asset-management affiliates operating under the Nuveen name, and Nuveen funds won top honors in 26 individual fund categories.
In the group award category for best overall small fund family, Thrivent Mutual Funds won for the third time.
