Target date funds: Who uses them and are they being used the “right” way?

August 22, 2017 Shruti Patel

With their “all-in” investment simplicity and automated de-risking, target date funds (TDFs) were seen as a panacea for the investing woes of defined contribution investors.

  • The prevalence of partial TDF users

  • The impact of automatic enrollment on TDF use
