Description
The investment seeks total return over time, consistent with its strategic target allocation. The fund is a fund-of-funds that primarily invests in various affiliated mutual funds, unaffiliated mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds to gain exposure to the following asset classes: equity, fixed income, and alternative-style investments. It gradually reduces its potential market risk exposure over time by re-allocating its assets among these asset classes consistent with increasingly conservative strategic target allocations. The fund is primarily designed for investors expecting to retire and/or begin withdrawing funds around its target date of 2050.
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 2050 (the target year). The fund's 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.

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.

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.
