LifeFund Age-Based Portfolios
Our most popular investment option is the LifeFund Age-Based Portfolios (better known in the market as “Target Date Funds”). LifeFunds are a better option for those participants looking for a “do it for me” approach. The LifeFunds have an asset allocation solution that adjusts over the participant’s lifespan…which we call a glide path…and is perfect for busy participants who want to take a hands-off approach.
