Since 1995, we’ve managed a lineup of multi-asset mutual funds. Now, we offer target date, target risk, and managed payout multi-asset mutual funds—a comprehensive selection of product solutions at competitive pricing, for both individuals and employer-sponsored retirement plans.

We take a behavioral-based approach to asset allocation—an approach designed to help investors stay invested across market conditions, and that leverages our investment research and deep asset allocation expertise. To meet investor needs, we utilize a variety of underlying strategy types, including proprietary and non-proprietary as well as active and passive strategies. And our pricing approach seeks to give everyone—even the smallest business—access to a range of quality target date funds at competitive prices.
A behavioral-driven glide path design
Our target date solutions are managed to seek more growth when investors can take on more risk and greater stability when they need to rely on their investments.
