About Nuveen ESG International Developed Markets Eqty
The fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the TIAA ESG International Developed Markets Equity Index (the “Index”). The fund employs a passive management (or “indexing”) approach, investing all or substantially all of its assets in the securities represented in the Index in approximately the same proportions as the Index. The Index uses a rules-based methodology to arrive at a diversified portfolio of equity securities issued by companies located in countries with developed markets (excluding the U.S. and Canada) that adhere to predetermined ESG, controversial business involvement and low-carbon screen criteria. The Index is rebalanced quarterly. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
