Diversified Retirement Fund

The Diversified Retirement Fund is a cost-effective solution for DC pension plans that seek to reduce market risk for members as retirement date approaches. It is a simple and robust solution for use as a stand-alone fund for members nearing retirement or within a lifestyle arrangement.



The fund is designed to be a component of a lifestyle strategy or as a self-select option for individuals nearing retirement.

Why The Diversified Retirement Fund Might Be Appropriate For You
