The Global Tilt in Target Date Funds

Target date funds (TDFs) have quickly become a favorite default option within retirement plans. While the overall split among stocks and bonds within a TDF series, commonly referred to as the glide path, is a primary driver of results and therefore participant outcomes, what those asset classes are composed of can also impact results and is worthy of consideration. As a number of TDF providers have announced changes to their TDFs’ international stock and bond exposures, it is important for plan sponsors to understand the implications of those changes and how their plan’s TDFs may be affected. In addition, TDF providers can use different tools when implementing these changes, from strategic shifts to tactical overlays to currency hedging, adding another layer to consider when evaluating the product.
