The blend of investments in each portfolio are usually determined by an asset allocation process that seeks to maximize assets based on an investor's investment time horizon and tolerance for risk. Typically, the strategic asset mix in each portfolio systematically rebalances at varying intervals and becomes more conservative (less equity exposure) overtime as investors move closer to the target date.
