Target Date Fund: Look Long and Hard

IN BRIEF

• Risk management, a top level consideration in target date fund selection, should factor in a fund's role as a single investment solution over a long horizon, as well as the potential impact of market shocks on retirement savings.

• Target date fund glide paths must accommodate a wide range of investors, and should focus more on the appropriate allocation for the end-investor rather than a to or through approach.

• Asset allocation decisions should focus on appropriate risk profiles rather than return assumptions through the glide path.
