A Commitment to Plan Participants

We have extensive experience providing retirement plan investment solutions designed to help participants achieve retirement success. Considered a pioneer of lifecycle investing, we have helped plan participants build and protect retirement wealth for more than four decades. Through our full array of fund offerings, we are committed to achieving a better financial future for plan participants.

QDIA Solutions

Market environments can change dramatically over the length of time that a participant is saving for retirement. Helping protect participant balances in tough times is critical, particularly in the plan’s QDIA (Qualified Default Investment Alternative), an investment solution that may hold the majority of a participant’s retirement wealth. We believe plan participants benefit from continuous oversight and ongoing portfolio adjustments as market conditions change. Our goal is to maximize outcomes while minimizing risk to help participants meet their retirement savings needs.

Target Date Funds

Manning & Napier employs a non-traditional fund-of-funds structure, investing each of our target date funds in managed portfolios of stocks and bonds. This unique approach ensures coordinated portfolio management decisions.

Our ETF Target CITs are a low-cost solution that combines our asset allocation expertise with underlying index-based exchange-traded funds.

    Your Financial Planning Questions, Answered

    A sudden downturn in the markets usually gets individuals and families thinking about their personal finances. At a time like this, it’s important to make sure your financial plan is still in a place to succeed, no matter how long the volatility may last. Below, we’ve outlined some of the most …

Manning & Napier's lifecycle offerings include target date (age-based) and risk-based mutual funds (Manning & Napier Fund, Inc. Target Series and Pro-Blend® Series) and affiliate collective investment trusts (CIT) (Manning & Napier Pro-Mix® CITs, Retirement Target CITs, and Manning & Napier Fi360 ETF Target CITs).

Because lifecycle funds 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 lifecycle funds also involves 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. Investments in options and futures, like all derivatives, can be highly volatile and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying instrument on which the derivative is based, such as counterparty, correlation and liquidity risk. Also, the use of leverage increases exposure to the market and may magnify potential losses. Additionally, some target date funds invest in other funds and therefore, may have additional risks associated with the underlying funds. 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).
