An asset mix to match the time horizon
With Target Destination Funds, your clients’ investments are automatically rebalanced to become more conservative as they near the target date. This helps them maintain the right balance of risk for their current life stage.
The way assets are allocated in the years approaching retirement is called the glide path. Some companies design their glide paths to get investors to retirement. At Nationwide, we believe the glide path should carry investors 20 years through retirement.
To support this, Target Destination Funds maintain some equity exposure throughout retirement years, in an effort to protect older investors against inflation and longevity risk.
Our glide path methodology was developed by Ibbotson, an industry authority on asset allocation. The glide path shows you how investment allocations change as your clients approach retirement.
