Description
The investment seeks to provide total return consistent with the Portfolio's current asset allocation. To achieve its investment objective, the fund allocates its assets to other mutual funds managed by the Advisor according to an asset allocation strategy designed for investors that retired in or within a few years of 2005 and are planning to withdraw the value of the investment in the Portfolio over many years after the target date. Over time, the fund's allocation to the underlying funds is expected to change based on the asset allocation strategy that becomes generally more conservative as it nears the final "landing point".
The investment seeks to provide capital appreciation and income consistent with its current asset allocation. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in affiliated Schwab exchange-traded funds (ETFs). It has a policy to invest, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its assets (net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in underlying funds that are managed to seek investment returns that track particular market indices. The fund is managed based on the specific retirement date (target date) included in its name and assumes a retirement age of 65.
The investment seeks to provide capital appreciation and current income consistent with its current asset allocation. The fund invests in other Vanguard mutual funds according to an asset allocation strategy designed for investors planning to retire and leave the workforce in or within a few years of 2010 (the target year). Its asset allocation will become more conservative over time, meaning that the percentage of assets allocated to stocks will decrease while the percentage of assets allocated to bonds and other fixed income investments will increase.

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.
