Investment Objective

To provide capital growth and manage risk for investors planning to retire in or around the year indicated in the fund’s name.

Investment Strategy

Currently: The portfolio is currently invested in a moderately aggressive, growth-oriented mix of securities that seeks to earn the long-term growth typically associated with the stock market without full market risk. The portfolio is diversified primarily among multiple exchange-traded funds (ETFs) which provide exposure to various stock and fixed income issuers, markets, and sectors. Stock exposure can range from 67% - 93%.

Over Time: The portfolio’s investment mix will gradually become more conservative as the target date approaches and for several years after the target date. During the target year, the portfolio’s stock exposure can range from 20% - 60%. At five years after the target date and beyond, the focus will be on capital preservation, and stock exposure can range from 15% - 45%.

May be Appropriate for Investors

  • Who plan to stop contributions and start periodic withdrawals around the year 2045. Such investors have time to withstand market volatility and can accept very significant fluctuations in current account value
  • Who prefer to take advantage of professional management through a single, diversified investment portfolio that becomes more conservative over time

About Target Date Funds

A target date fund is a single investment portfolio designed to meet an investor’s changing needs over time. The fund gradually shifts from a more aggressive to a more conservative investment objective over the years to reflect an appropriate risk/return trade-off for the investor’s changing time horizon.

A Word About Risk

Each MANNING & NAPIER GOAL® CIT Fund is invested in approximately 15 - 25 ETFs, based on the GOAL CIT Fund becoming increasingly conservative over time. Because the underlying ETFs invest in both stocks and bonds, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements and changes in interest rates. Investing in target date funds will also involve a number of other risks, including issuer-specific risk, foreign investment risk, and small-cap/mid-cap risk, as the underlying investments change over time. Principal value is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date (the approximate year when an investor plans to stop contributions and start periodic withdrawals).
