Target date fund education
How do target date funds simplify my retirement plan?
TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index Fund is an all-in-one investment option that offer a completely diversified portfolio with asset allocations that are geared toward the closest year in which you expect to retire. These funds are professionally managed and utilize a glidepath designed to keep you aligned with your retirement goals.
What is a glidepath?
An important feature of any target date investment is the structure of its glidepath, or the specific mix of stocks and bonds that adjusts over time. A fund’s glidepath generally shows how the stock/bond mix shifts from a more aggressive to a more conservative investment approach over time as the fund moves toward and beyond its target date year. See how target date funds can be your single solution when it comes to retirement savings.
Which target date fund series is right for me?
Choosing the correct target date fund is going to depend on the age that’s closest to you when you plan on retiring. Our Lifecycle Index Funds are set up in 5 year increments, giving you multiple target date options. Simply choose the target date that aligns with your projected retirement date.
