Description
The investment seeks the highest level of long-term total return. The fund is a "fund of funds" meaning that it seeks to achieve its investment goal by investing its assets primarily in other funds, predominantly other Franklin Templeton mutual funds and exchange traded funds (underlying funds). The investment manager uses the following as a general guide in allocating the fund's assets among the broad asset classes. These percentages may be changed from time to time by the fund's investment manager without the approval of shareholders, and may vary up to 10% from the stated allocations: 60% equity funds; and 40% fixed-income funds.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the S&P Target Risk Growth Index composed of a portfolio of underlying equity and fixed income funds intended to represent a growth allocation target risk strategy. The fund is a fund of funds and seeks its investment objective by investing primarily in the securities of other iShares underlying funds that themselves seek investment results corresponding to their own underlying index. The S&P Target Risk Growth Index measures the performance of the S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC proprietary allocation model.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and income. As a "fund of funds," the fund invests in a diversified portfolio of other Vanguard mutual funds, rather than in individual securities. It follows a balanced investment approach by placing 60% to 70% of its assets in common stocks through eight stock funds; 20% to 30% of its assets in bonds through two bond funds; and 10% to 20% of its assets in short-term investments through a short-term bond fund. Through the underlying funds, the fund owns a diversified mix of stocks and bonds.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
