Investment professionals gradually adjust a college target date portfolio over time so that it becomes more preservation-oriented. The college target date is the year that corresponds roughly to the year in which the beneficiary is expected to begin taking withdrawals. The allocation strategy does not guarantee that investors' education savings goals will be met. Investors and their financial professionals should periodically evaluate their investment to determine whether it continues to meet their needs.
Allocations may not achieve investment objectives. The portfolios' risks are directly related to the risks of the underlying funds.
Lower rated bonds are subject to greater fluctuations in value and risk of loss of income and principal than higher rated bonds.
The return of principal for bond funds and for funds with significant underlying bond holdings is not guaranteed. Fund shares are subject to the same interest rate, inflation and credit risks associated with the underlying bond holdings.
Investing outside the United States involves risks, such as currency fluctuations, periods of illiquidity and price volatility. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in developing countries.
