529 Plan Investment Details

Age-Based Portfolio

This approach simplifies investing to one easy decision. Your assets start in a globally diversified portfolio appropriate for the account beneficiary’s age and then automatically become more conservative as college gets closer. The goal is to maximize return potential in early years and reduce risks when you need to protect capital and generate income for college expenses.

Select your target age to view the related portfolio.
Asset Allocation Portfolios

Like the age-based portfolio, these portfolios are broadly diversified across markets and portfolio managers. The difference is that the asset mix in an asset allocation portfolio stays the same unless you and your advisor decide to switch to a different investment pursuing a different objective.

Select your portfolio
Individual Portfolios

For maximum customization potential, you and your advisor can choose individual portfolios, each investing in a single underlying asset class. Select one individual portfolio to round out your existing holdings or combine several to create and control an asset mix customized to your specific needs.
