The markets evolve. Do your Target Date Funds?

It’s all about the outcome. Invest in your participants’ future. Know the risks that will change their outcome. The only constant is change. Give them a solution that adapts to drive better retirement outcomes.

Risk Target Date Strategy
Market Focus on downside protection with a de-risking strategy through age 75, 10 years after the target date
Inflation Support purchasing power potential through a trio of asset classes sensitive to inflation - global real estate, commodities and U.S. TIPS
Longevity Optimize growth potential to sustain income through retirement with a global weighted equity allocation
