A risk-managed approach to retirement investing
A suite of target-date funds that uses a blend of active and passive portfolio
management to capture global growth opportunities, maintain purchasing power and
guard against the market shocks that can derail retirement savings.
Why Invest In This Fund
Build and protect purchasing power
REALPATH® Blend funds aim to build purchasing power by
investing across an exceptionally broad range of asset classes and protect purchasing power by investing in
inflation-related investments, such as TIPS. The funds generally combine a passive, index-based approach
to equities with an actively-managed approach to other investments.
REALPATH® Blend funds take a measured approach to equity risk exposure, emphasizing
capital preservation and carefully managing risk allocations over the entire course of an investor’s life -
especially near retirement.
Guard against shocks
In addition to taking a broadly diversified approach,REALPATH® funds employ
hedging strategies specifically designed to curb the effects of severe market stress on a retirement
portfolio. If left unchecked, the losses caused by market setbacks can be devastating, especially in the
years directly before retirement.
