Course Description

A target date fund (TDF) – also known as a lifecycle, dynamic-risk, or age-based fund – is a collective investment scheme, often a mutual fund or a collective trust fund, designed to provide a simple investment solution through a portfolio whose asset allocation mix becomes more conservative as the target date (usual retirement) approaches

On May 6, 2021, Senator Patty Murray, D-Wash., Chair of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, and Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, D-Va.), Chair of the House Education and Labor Committee, sent a letter to Gene Dodaro, Comptroller the GAO. They seek answers to 10 questions dealing with concerns that some aspects of TDFs may place American retirement savers at risk.

They wrote:

“…we write to request the General Accountability Office (GAO) conduct a review of target-date funds (TDFs). The employer-provided retirement system must effectively serve its participants and retirees, and we are concerned certain aspects of TDFs may be placing them at risk.”

At $2.5 trillion and growing, TDFs are the biggest deal in defined contribution savings plans but despite their popularity, most are very risky even at the target date. TDFs for people retiring near 2010 lost 30% in 2008 and the next shock could be much worse.

Key topics covered in this online Finance CPE webinar:

  • What are TDFs?
  • How are TDFs selected?
  • How did near-dated TDFs fare in the pandemic?
