Help me do it
Select an investment option that aligns with your investing personality (conservative, moderate, aggressive) or the year closest to when you hope to retire. Consider asset allocation funds or target date funds.
Asset allocation funds are available for conservative, moderate or aggressive investors.
Target date funds are a type of asset allocation fund that is rebalanced over time to become more conservative as retirement approaches.
Target date funds invest in a wide variety of underlying funds to help reduce investment risk. So, in addition to the expenses of the target date funds, you pay a proportionate share of the expenses of the underlying funds. Target date funds are designed for people who plan to withdraw funds during or near a specific year. Like other funds, target date funds are subject to market risk and loss. Loss of principal can occur at any time, including before, at or after the target date. There is no guarantee that target date funds will provide enough income for retirement.
