Fund Description

The fund is a fund of funds that invests in various master portfolios ("underlying funds"), which in turn, invest in a combination of securities to gain exposure to equity and fixed income asset classes. It gradually reduces its potential market risk exposures over time by generally re-allocating its assets among these asset classes, consistent with increasingly conservative strategic target allocations. The fund is primarily designed for investors expecting to retire and/or begin gradually withdrawing funds around its target date of 2025.
