Take aim at your personal
retirement target date
with the help of a guided
risk-management discipline


When you can clearly see the target, your retirement planning will start falling into sharper focus.

To help you, 1290 Asset Managers offers the 1290 Retirement Funds, a series of mutual funds with specific retirement target dates and a guided risk-management discipline. Each Fund has a built-in allocation glide-path that seeks to anticipate your risk tolerance at different stages of life. The Fund's investments in underlying exchange traded securities and other investment vehicles ("Underlying ETFs") are then adjusted to maintain an age-appropriate balance between seeking capital growth and capital preservation.

You make one decision - to purchase the Fund that best corresponds to your target date. Thereafter, the risk-management discipline takes over to help you simplify investing — all the way to retirement and beyond.

Each of the nine 1290 Retirement Funds features:

  • A specific retirement target date. Target dates are at five-year intervals, so you can choose the one closest to the date you expect to start retirement – from 2020 to 2060.
  • Instant diversification. To keep your holdings well diversified, each Fund includes a mix of Underlying ETFs in varying asset classes. While diversification doesn't assure a profit or protect against loss, it can help to smooth ups and downs in portfolio performance.
  • Rebalancing. The portfolio manager aims to keep holdings aligned with model asset class weights, which reflect the Fund’s risk management discipline. When holdings diverge from these weights, the manager brings them back into alignment. This helps to keep your asset allocation and risk-management discipline current through changing markets.
  • Familiar underlying investments. The Fund invests in Underlying ETFs, each of which is carefully selected and monitored by the adviser, 1290 Asset Managers. These securities, which are familiar to many investors, offer the liquidity of daily pricing and trading on public markets.
  • Volatility management. Some Underlying ETFs in which the Fund invests emphasize price volatility management. This technique helps to take the emotion out of investing by reducing equity risk exposure when stock markets turn more volatile.

How the Fund invests

The Funds invest in Underlying ETFs, which represent a variety of asset classes. The Funds are managed to target the specific year of planned retirement (the “retirement year” or “target year”) in five year increments from 2020 to 2060. The retirement year also assumes that an investor retires at age 65; however, the Fund should not be selected solely on the basis of an investor’s age or the target year. The Fund’s asset mix will become more conservative each year until reaching the year approximately 10 years after the retirement year at which time it is intended that the asset mix will become relatively stable. The Fund balances the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focuses on supporting an income stream over a long-term retirement withdrawal horizon. The Fund is not designed for a lump sum redemption at the target year and does not guarantee a particular level of income. The Fund maintains significant allocations to equities both prior to and after the target year and is generally expected to reach its most conservative allocation 10 years after the target year.

An investment in the fund will not ensure that an investor will have assets sufficient to cover retirement expenses or that an investor will have enough saved to be able to retire in, or within a few years of, the target year identified in the Fund's name. Equity securities involve the risk that the value of the securities may fluctuate, sometimes widely fluctuate, in response to changes in a company's financial condition as well as general market, economic and political conditions and other factors. Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk so that when interest rates rise, the prices of fixed income securities can decrease and the investor can lose principal value.

Investments in foreign securities, including depositary receipts, involve risks not associated with investing in U.S. securities. Foreign markets, particularly emerging markets, may be less liquid, more volatile and subject to less government supervision than domestic markets. Security values also may be negatively affected by changes in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies. Differences between U.S. and foreign legal, political and economic systems, regulatory regimes and market practices also may impact security values and it may take more time to clear and settle trades. Equity securities involve the risk that the value of the securities may fluctuate, sometimes widely fluctuate, in response to changes in a company's financial condition as well as general market, economic and political conditions and other factors. To the extent a Fund invests in Underlying ETFs, the Fund will be subject to the risks associated with the securities and other investments in which the Underlying ETF invest and the ability of the Fund to meet its investment objective will directly depend on the ability of the Underlying ETFs to meet their investment objective. In addition, the use of volatility management techniques by the Underlying ETF may limit the Fund's participation in market gains, particularly during periods when market values are increasing, but market volatility is high.

2The S&P Target Date® Index Series comprises eleven multi-asset class indices, each corresponding to a particular target retirement date. The asset allocation for each index in the series is determined once a year through survey of large fund management companies that offer target date products. Each index is fully investable, with varying levels of exposure to equities, fixed income and commodities.

3Pursuant to a contract, 1290 Asset Managers® has agreed to make payments or waive its management, administrative and other fees to limit the expenses of the Fund through April 30, 2018 (unless the Board of Trustees consents to an earlier revision or termination of this arrangement) (“Expense Limitation Arrangement”) so that the annual operating expenses (including Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses) of the Fund (exclusive of taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, capitalized expenses (other than offering costs), 12b-1 fees, and extraordinary expenses) do not exceed an annual rate of average daily net assets of 0.65% for Class I shares of the Fund. The Expense Limitation Arrangement may be terminated by 1290 Asset Managers® at any time after April 30, 2018.

The 1290 Retirement Funds launched on February 27, 2017; therefore, distribution information is not available at this time.
