Popular investment strategies

Asset allocation

A disciplined approach to long-term investing, designed to seek consistent exposure to markets. This approach does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss. It also cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns. However, it may be used in an effort to manage risk and enhance returns.

Dollar cost averaging

A strategy in which securities, typically mutual funds, are purchased in fixed dollar amounts at regular intervals, regardless of what direction the market is moving. While this method doesn't guarantee against losses, over time, this can help to reduce the average cost of acquired shares.

Target date ("life cycle") investing

Investors choose a fund with a specified target date near a personal need or goal (such as retirement) for which they will need to access their invested funds. Though target date investing does not protect against loss of principal, the fund's risk exposure is gradually reduced as a target date draws nearer to prepare for the approaching liquidity needs.
