Target risk

Target risk options are designed to have relatively constant exposure to equity, fixed income and money market securities throughout the life of the account, rather than adjusting over time. Choose the portfolio that matches your current risk tolerance. Your assets remain focused on that risk level unless you choose to move them into another portfolio.

Aggressive Growth

Single strategy

Pick from a menu of single strategy investment options to build a customized portfolio. Choose one or many to tailor the mix as you see fit, knowing you can make adjustments over time. In general, the risk level increases as you move from money markets to fixed income to balanced to equity options, but since that is not always the case, it’s important to align with your personal goals and risk tolerance.
