The fund offers a professionally managed allocation of assets among a broad range of stock and, to a lesser degree, bond funds, which, in turn, have holdings in many different foreign countries, industrialized as well as emerging markets, and in both large and small companies. Because it invests in a variety of underlying funds, the fund's performance could benefit from diversification.
This fund's risks will directly correspond to the risks of the underlying funds in which it invests. By investing in many underlying funds, the fund has partial exposure to the risks of many different areas of the market. However, the selection of the underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes and market sectors could cause the fund to underperform other funds with a similar investment objective.
* Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their 10-year standard deviation
(as of December 2015) or, for newer funds, the standard deviation of the types of securities
in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
