1 Source: Morningstar, US Fund Target Date categories. Analyst rating as of 10/4/21; applies to SmartRetirement Blend R6 mutual funds only. The Morningstar Analyst Rating™ 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 three pillars--People, Process, and Parent – 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.
For more details about Morningstar’s Analyst Rating, including its methodology, go to https://shareholders.morningstar.com/investor-relations/governance/Compliance—Disclosure/default.aspx
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.
