A well designed glide path

Although the target date funds are managed for investors on a projected retirement date time frame, the fund’s allocation strategy does not guarantee that investors’ retirement goals will be met. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Distinguishing characteristics of our glide path
  • Managed for approximately 30 years past retirement so investors could feasibly use a single fund for decades.
  • Meaningful equity exposure throughout retirement to help manage the risk of outliving savings.
  • Emphasizes dividends with the intent of providing more equity exposure without increasing volatility.

American Funds investment professionals manage the target date fund’s portfolio, moving it from a more growth-oriented to a more income-oriented focus as the fund gets closer to its target date: the year that corresponds roughly to the year in which an investor is assumed to retire and begin taking withdrawals. They continue to manage each fund for approximately 30 years after it reaches its target date.

You should carefully consider the target date fund you select. Generally, investors choose a fund with the target year closest to the date they plan to retire. For example, a 45-year-old who plans to retire at age 65 might choose a target date fund with a date close to 20 years in the future. In order to provide protected lifetime income benefits, Lincoln may limit access to some funds that investors normally may have selected to match their retirement date.

The fund’s investment adviser anticipates that the funds will invest their assets within a range that deviates no more than 10% above or below these allocations. Changes in the equity allocation within the underlying equity-income and balanced funds may affect the overall equity exposure in the target date funds.
