This research addresses the importance of investment fees in determining the long-term success of targed date funds (TDFs) in providing participant retirement income security. Depending on their plan design and governance budget, plan sponsors typically consider numerous factors when evaluating and selecting off-the-shelf TDFs or in designing a customized TDF solution. Important TDF considerations often include plan objectives and governance budget, employee demographics and savings practices, investment risk exposures, additional sources of retirement income (e.g., pension plan and Social Security benefits) and fees.
