JPMorgan SmartRetirement® Blend 2055 - J.P. Morgan Asset Management

JPMorgan SmartRetirement® Blend 2055

This fund is designed for individuals born in 1989 to 1993

When you select a SmartRetirement Blend Fund, you're automatically invested in more than 15 underlying funds across two asset classes - stocks and bonds. By investing in the fund, a team of more than 80 investment professionals at J.P. Morgan* is responsible for shifting the allocation from stocks to bonds as the fund approaches its target date. This way your fund automatically changes to become more conservative as you approach your target retirement date.

Since each SmartRetirement Blend Fund is dynamically managed for a specific date in the future, you'll want to consider selecting one named for the year closest to when you plan to retire and begin withdrawing from your account.

The gross expense ratio of the fund includes the estimated fees and expenses of the underlying funds. There may be additional fees associated with investing in a Fund of Funds strategy.

Refer to the Conflicts of Interest section of the Fund’s Prospectus.

Certain underlying funds of the SmartRetirement Blend Funds may have unique risks associated with investments in foreign/emerging market securities and/or fixed income instruments. International investing involves increased risk and volatility due to currency exchange rate changes; political, social or economic instability; and accounting or other financial standards differences.


Fixed income securities generally decline in price when interest rates rise.

Real estate funds may be subject to a higher degree of market risk because of concentration in a specific industry, sector or geographical sector, including but not limited to, declines in the value of real estate, risk related to general and economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property owned by the trust and defaults by the borrower.

The fund may invest in futures contracts and other derivatives. This may make the fund more volatile.

There is no guarantee that companies that can issue dividends will declare, continue to pay or increase dividends. Investment return and principal value of security investments will fluctuate. The value at the time of redemption may be more or less than the original cost. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Small- and mid-capitalization funds typically carry more risk than stock funds investing in well-established "blue-chip" companies, because smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Historically, smaller companies' stock has experienced a greater degree of market volatility than the average stock.

The Morningstar Rating,TM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10- year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Rankings do not take sales loads into account.

Some of Morningstar's proprietary calculations, including the Morningstar RatingTM, are not customarily calculated based on adjusted historical returns. However, for new share classes/channels, Morningstar may calculate an extended performance Morningstar Rating. The extended performance is calculated by adjusting the historical total returns of the oldest share class of a fund to reflect the fee structure of the younger share class/channel, attaching this data to the younger share class' performance record, and then compounding the adjusted plus actual monthly returns into the extended performance Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return for the three-, five-, and 10-year time periods. The Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Returns are used to determine the extended performance Morningstar Rating. The extended performance Morningstar Rating for this fund does not affect the retail fund data published by Morningstar, as the bell curve distribution on which the ratings are based includes only funds with actual returns. The Overall Morningstar Rating for multi-share funds is based on actual performance only or extended performance only. Once the share class turns three years old, the Overall Morningstar Rating will be based on actual ratings only. The Overall Morningstar Rating for multi-share variable annuities is based on a weighted average of any ratings that are available.

While the inclusion of pre-inception data, in the form of extended performance, can provide valuable insight into the probable long-term behavior of newer share classes of a fund, investors should be aware that an adjusted historical return can only provide an approximation of that behavior. For example, the fee structures of a retail share class will vary from that of an institutional share class, as retail shares tend to have higher operating expenses and sales charges. These adjusted historical returns are not actual returns. The underlying investments in the share classes used to calculate the pre-performance string will likely vary from the underlying investments held in the fund after inception. Calculation methodologies utilized by Morningstar may differ from those applied by other entities, including the fund itself.

The Morningstar Analyst RatingTM is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by various Morningstar, Inc. subsidiaries (“Manager Research Group”) which, in the U.S., is Morningstar Research Services LLC, registered with and governed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Funds are evaluated based on five key pillars – process, performance, people, parent and price – to determine how they may likely perform relative to a benchmark over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. The Analyst Rating scale is Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, Negative. A rating of Gold, Silver or Bronze reflects the expectation of a fund's prospects for outperformance. The expectations and methodologies differ between active and passive funds. Analyst Ratings ultimately reflect the Manager Research Group’s overall assessment, are overseen by an Analyst Rating Committee, and are continuously monitored and reevaluated at least every 14 months.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a fund, involves unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause the Manager Research Group’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what they expected, and should not be considered an offer or solicitation to buy or sell the fund.
