A target date series is only as good as its underlying funds. This infographic illustrates just how “Terrific” the underlying funds of the American Funds Target Date Retirement Series℠ have been.
- Rigorously screened — Morningstar applied strict criteria to more than 8,000 funds to create its latest list of “Terrific” funds. Only 43 funds made the grade, and 13 of those were American Funds.
- The most recognized funds — All 13 of our “Terrific” funds are in our target date series — giving our series more recognized underlying funds than any other.
- Consistently Exceptional — In all six years of Morningstar’s list, at least half of the underlying equity funds in our target date series have been deemed exceptional.
