Target Date Funds
The Target Date Funds offer you a flexible approach to investing your pension savings. They allow you to match your investment strategy to a ‘target date range’, which will normally be aligned to the date at which you currently plan to retire or access your pension savings.
Please note that the five year target range for each fund begins and ends at the start of July. This means, for example, that if your target retirement date is in 2050 you will need to consider whether the 2045-2050 Target Date Fund or the 2050-2055 Target Date Fund is more likely to fit your plans.
This type of fund is relatively new in the UK. They are often referred to as TDFs. The idea is that you save in a single fund along with other people who have a similar target retirement date in mind.
