The Significance of TDF Suitability

In the ever-evolving landscape of retirement planning, TDFs have gained significant popularity. The variations in risk levels among different target date funds highlight the importance of a comprehensive selection process. With the potential for substantial differences in outcomes for plan participants, it's crucial to understand the intricacies of each fund's strategy and risk allocation.

With the constant change in the retirement industry and with the investment world, target date funds have been an up-and-coming solution for advisors and participants. It is important to fully understand the differences between each target date fund and their glidepaths. Each individual TDF have varying qualities, so learning each fund's risk rating and aligning them with a plan's demographic is imperative for ensuring a more personalized experience for participants.

Key Considerations in Target Date Fund Evaluation

  • Know exactly what each fund contains and why.
  • Learn what fees are associated with each fund. The cheapest option might not always be the best for every plan.
  • Communicate with participants so they fully grasp what their options are. Utilize the Participant Memos from our Resource Center or work with Venrollment to assist your communication efforts.
  • Document EVERYTHING. Our Analyzer tool helps you document your entire process to make your life easier.
