Not slowing down: 30 years of target date fund innovation

Three decades after its launch as the first target date fund on the market, LifePath® has seen investors through more market ups and downs than any other target date fund. We’re continuously evolving so we can help deliver the outcomes savers need to retire on their own terms – whether that means slowing down or not.
