TYPES  OF  INVESTMENTS

Mutual Funds Chart

Mutual Funds

Mutual Funds respond to the ebbs and flows of the financial markets and the overall economy. Each Investment Provider has a menu of Mutual Funds to choose from. Each Mutual Fund falls into an asset category, which identifies what types of stocks or bonds are held within that fund. Additional information about the Mutual Funds offered by the Plan can be found in the Informe de Rendimiento Trimestral or on the Investment Provider websites.

Fixed Accounts

Fixed Accounts are much like savings accounts that gain a predetermined amount of interest, guaranteed through the end of the quarter. Participants can use the Fixed Account to minimize risk and diversify investments. Each Investment Provider offers a Fixed Account, guaranteeing a certain return for the quarter. The assets in Fixed Accounts are backed by the financial strength of the insurance companies offering these products.

Target Date Funds

Target Date Funds provide a diverse mix of investments (stocks, bonds, and cash equivalents) that periodically and automatically adjust over time to grow more conservative as you near your target retirement date. Target Date Funds automatically adjust your investments for you. Early in your career, you are primarily allocated in growth-based investments. Over time, you are primarily allocated in more stable investments as you gradually near retirement.
