A Patent-Pending New Asset Class

Explore Target Date Funds with Lifetime Income Builder

Simply stated, a target date fund with Lifetime Income Builder offers more. Our patent-pending design embeds Lifetime Income Builder directly into the portfolio, preserving the growth, liquidity, and control participants expect. Starting with a fixed indexed annuity (FIA) chassis that includes a guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit (GLWB), we engineered Lifetime Income Builder to function like any other investment, and in the process created a new investment asset class.

More Growth and Income Opportunity

Participants can achieve similar or better growth opportunity as traditional target date funds, and will receive 6% income in retirement.1

Simple and Automatic

Just like other target date funds, the participant experience is seamless and automatic to help avoid decision paralysis and confusion.

Flexibility and Control

Traditional income solutions lack liquidity and portability. Our design offers both – lifetime liquidity for the entire account value and portability between multiple recordkeepers and IRA providers.

Designed with the Participant in Mind

With their straightforward and user-friendly design, target date funds with Lifetime Income Builder eliminate any participant confusion and decision-making paralysis that more complex traditional in-plan income products may create. When the solution is offered as the plan’s qualified default investment alternative (QDIA) option, employee placement is automatic at enrollment. They only need to decide how much to contribute – the solution does all the rest.

Built to Benefit all Stakeholders

The solution’s efficient design doesn’t only benefit participants. Target date funds with Lifetime Income Builder also align the best interests of all stakeholders in the defined contribution plan value chain including sponsors, consultants, recordkeepers, asset managers and insurance carriers.
