Target-Date Fund Comparison
Target Date Funds are very popular in today's retirement plans, because of their diversification in asset classes and their implied risk tolerance. They often also are the default choice for investors. At Kivalia we believe we can deliver additional return above and beyond the passive and default target-date funds, and it seems natural to compare our returns to them. Specifically, we have chosen:
- Vanguard Target Date 2020 with its relatively high investment in bonds is a good comparison to the generally lower risk conservative model portfolio.
- Vanguard Target Date 2030 with its relatively balanced investment in bonds and equities is a good comparison to the moderate model portfolio.
- Vanguard Target Date 2050 with its relatively high investment in equities is a good comparison to the generally higher risk aggressive model portfolio.
We will evaluate the Target Date Funds on a regular basis to make sure they remain good comparisons for our model portfolios.
