Investments

Explore the broad range of investment options available to help you achieve your retirement goals.

About your investments

Your plan includes an investment lineup with a diverse array of options. These investment choices represent a broad spectrum of asset classes and risk/return characteristics to allow you to tailor your account to help meet your particular financial goals and match your investing style.

Target-date funds

To help meet the needs of those who perhaps don’t have the time or interest in creating their own investment portfolios, our lineup also includes target-date funds.

Target date funds let you choose a professionally allocated portfolio based on the target date of the fund. The target date is the approximate date when investors in the fund would expect to retire or begin taking withdrawals.

To learn more about any of the funds available in our investment line-up, Fund Fact Sheets are available via the links on this page. Select a fund name from the list to view a PDF (  ) that offers a closer look at more details about the fund’s performance, fees and underlying investments.

All investing involves various risks, including the possible loss of principal. You can lose money by investing in securities.

The target-date is the approximate date when investors plan to retire and may begin withdrawing their money. The asset allocation of the target-date funds will become more conservative as the target-date approaches by lessening your equity exposure and increasing your exposure in fixed income investments. The principal value of an investment in a target-date fund is not guaranteed at any time, including the target-date. There is no guarantee that the fund will provide adequate retirement income.
A target-date fund should not be selected solely based on age or retirement date. Before investing, participants should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses, as well as their age, anticipated retirement date, risk tolerance, other investments owned, and planned withdrawals. The stated asset allocation may be subject to change. It is possible to lose money in a target-date fund, including losses near and following retirement. Investments in the funds are not deposits or obligations of any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by any governmental agency or instrumentality.
