Lifecycle Funds
 Use a Fund of Funds representing different asset classes

the approximate year you'll begin withdrawals (target retirement date)
 Funds are Professionally Managed
Allocation Mix Adjusted Automatically over the years as the
retirement year approaches*
Please note that as with all mutual funds, the principal value of a Lifecycle
Fund isn’t guaranteed. Also, please note that the target date of a Lifecycle
Fund is an approximate date when investors may begin withdrawing from
the Fund.

which they invest. In addition to the fees and expenses associated with the Lifecycle Funds, there is exposure to the fees
and expenses associated with the underlying mutual funds as well.
