Franklin LifeSmart 2020 Retirement Target Fund

Fund Description

The fund's investment goal is to seek the highest level of long-term total return consistent with its asset allocation. Total return consists of both capital appreciation and income, with the fund placing an increasing emphasis on fixed income as the target date 2020 approaches, and reaching its final and most conservative asset allocation approximately five years after the target year.

Along with an expectation to retire in or near the year 2020 and delay withdrawals until required minimum distribution age, the fund is designed for investors that want:

  • the simplicity of an asset allocation fund paired with a risk management approach.
  • active and flexible portfolio management.
  • a specialized multi-asset strategy team managing complex investment decisions.

Strategy Statement

"Designed for investors who anticipate retiring on or around 2020, the fund provides asset allocation which adjusts to become progressively more conservative as the target date approaches."
