Build a stronger plan menu

With Capital Group, your clients can start with a target date series “most recommended” by advisors.4 Then they can choose a portfolio from the American Funds.

  • Sponsors can reduce their fiduciary liability — by meeting 404(c) requirements — when creating a well-diversified plan menu by selecting a target date series fund or a portfolio from up to 20 of the American Funds.
  • Although the American Funds Target Date Retirement Series® is available on many other providers' platforms, it is likely to be less expensive in a Capital Group retirement plan solution.

1 There is a one-time RecordkeeperDirect plan installation fee of $500 for startup plans; waived for R-2 only if plan assets reach $100,000 as of the last day of the plan’s first recordkeeping quarter. No charge for takeover plans. The $20 per-participant fee will be deducted from participant accounts.
2 Average expense ratios shown are provided only as examples. The actual average expense ratio depends on the investments selected for the plan and participant allocations. Expense ratios reflect applicable fee waivers and expense reimbursements, without which expenses would be higher.
3 The average expense ratio shown for each RecordkeeperDirect share class is for all funded investments and is weighted, based on average daily net assets in the program as of 12/31/2019. Accordingly, more weight is given to funds with more assets. Actual expense ratios, as reported in each fund's prospectus available at the time of publication, range from 1.35% to 1.97% for R-2; 0.91% to 1.53% for R-3; 0.61% to 1.23% for R-4, 0.39% to 1.03% for R-5E; and 0.25% to 0.87% for R-6.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing. 

Although the target date portfolios are managed for investors on a projected retirement date time frame, the allocation strategy does not guarantee that investors' retirement goals will be met. The target date is the year that corresponds roughly to the year in which an investor is assumed to retire and begin taking withdrawals. Investment professionals manage the portfolio, moving it from a more growth-oriented strategy to a more income-oriented focus as the target date gets closer. Investment professionals continue to manage each portfolio for approximately 30 years after it reaches its target date.
