Vanguard Target Retirement Funds are designed for people who plan to withdraw retirement funds during or near a specific year. These funds use a strategy that reallocates their assets to become more conservative as they approach retirement. However, these funds do not consider individual risk tolerances. The principal value is not guaranteed at any time including at the target date. When redeemed the amount received may be less than the amount invested
Vanguard Target Retirement Funds are designed for investors expecting to retire around the year indicated in each fund’s name. However, Vanguard notes that its target-year suggestions are based on a retirement age of 65. Investors who plan to retire significantly earlier or later may want to consider a fund with an asset allocation more appropriate to their particular situation. The assets in each fund are allocated to other Vanguard stock and bond funds to seek a blend of growth and current income. With the exception of the Vanguard Retirement Income Fund, the equity component of the funds may range from 40% to 90%. Except for the Vanguard Target Retirement Income Fund, the funds’ asset allocation becomes increasingly conservative as they approach their target date and beyond. Ultimately, they are expected to merge with the Vanguard Target Retirement Income Fund, which maintains about 70% in bonds. The investment risk of each Vanguard Target Retirement Fund changes over time as its asset allocation changes. They are subject to the volatility of the financial markets, including equity and fixed income investments in the U.S. and abroad and may be subject to risks associated with investing in high yield, small cap and foreign securities. Principal investment is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the designated target retirement date.
