At least choosing a retirement fund can be easy.
JPMorgan SmartRetirement® Blend Funds
As a target date fund, SmartRetirement Blend can help prepare you for the approximate year you plan to retire. It provides a single place to invest all the assets you have in your employer’s retirement plan.
Life is full of hard choices.
Surprisingly, selecting a retirement fund doesn’t have to be one of them.
JPMorgan SmartRetirement is a target date fund with everything you may need to plan for retirement, already built right in.
So it’s easy to be a smart investor.
SmartRetirement provides a single place for all your retirement plan money.
And it does the hard work of diversifying your investments, and adjusting your portfolio, to help ensure healthy growth.
All you need to do is decide when you’ll
retire – at age 65, for example – in order to pick the right fund for you.
Let’s say your target retirement date is 2049. You would choose the 2050 target date fund.
Then we take care of the rest.
Each of our target date funds is made up of many different investments, covering both stocks and bonds so you’re well-diversified.
Plus, our target date funds will automatically adjust your mix of assets to balance risk and return over time.
Let’s see how this might work. At age 25, your portfolio would include more stocks – to maximize growth while retirement is still far off.
By 45, the balance will have shifted somewhat to reduce risk as your goals begin to change.
And by 65, more of your money will be in conservative investments like bonds, as you look ahead to retirement.
After helping you be a smart saver, SmartRetirement can help you be a smart spender once you retire.
During this spending phase of life, the fund will identify a sample withdrawal amount each year, to help ensure your money lasts.
Of course, you’ll have total flexibility to spend more or less.
Our calculator will show how this affects future spending to help you stay on track.
In addition, SmartRetirement will continue to focus on investment gains, helping your money go further.
From saving to spending, SmartRetirement will be expertly managed by a team of J.P. Morgan investment professionals... using intelligent investment models that incorporate real investor behavior.
You just check in along the way to see how things are progressing.
So make the easy choice for your retirement: A JPMorgan SmartRetirement Target Date Fund.

What makes SmartRetirement Blend so easy?
Alex’s story: Aiming to maximize growth
Situation: While still in the early stages of his career Alex has $20,000 to invest. He understands the beneﬁts of investing now. But with retirement so far off, it’s not his main focus. Alex is:
• Looking for an investment that he can “set and forget”
• Comfortable taking some risks in pursuit of growth
Why SmartRetirement Blend: For a younger investor like Alex, a SmartRetirement Blend portfolio will initially be weighted toward stocks aiming to maximize growth. With a team of investment professionals managing the fund, Alex can feel conﬁdent he’s on the right track without being hands-on.
Courtney’s story: Balancing risk and return
Situation: Courtney works full-time. Plus she has three kids. Needless to say, she doesn’t have much time to think about large cap vs. small cap vs. value to invest her $100,000. So, once a year, she looks at her fund choices and takes her best guess. Courtney is:
• Overwhelmed by her investment options
• Looking for an investment that aims for growth without too much risk
Why SmartRetirement Blend: With SmartRetirement Blend, everything is planned out for Courtney. Year after year, her investment allocations will be adjusted based on her target retirement date. Being mid-career, Courtney would have a portfolio with a mix of stocks and bonds that balances risk and return.
Martina’s story: Preserving assets
Situation: With about five years to go until retirement, and $225,000 in assets to invest, Martina doesn’t want to take too many chances with her retirement plan savings, especially in today’s unpredictable economy. Her goal right now is to be smart and responsible with her money. Martina is:
• Concerned about market volatility and global unrest
• Savvy about her personal finances and focused on her future
Why SmartRetirement Blend: Just like Martina herself, a SmartRetirement Blend Fund will be focused on her target retirement date. As she gets closer to it, her investment allocations will gradually become more and more conservative to avoid unnecessary risk.
Jason’s story: Not just investing with confidence, spending with confidence
Situation: Jason and his wife are enjoying retirement, with $300,000 invested, but they’re still mindful of their spending. After all, their money may have to last another 30 years. Right now, they’re considering a 50th anniversary vacation with the kids and grandkids. Jason is:
• Worried a big trip will take too much out of their savings
• Uncertain what the impact will be on their yearly spending
Why SmartRetirement Blend: Jason likes to know how much he can comfortablyspend. With SmartRetirement Blend, all he has to do is check his sample withdrawal amount each year. Even better, he can use our online calculator to see how a big expense (like a trip) will affect his future spending ability, so he can adjust his plans accordingly.
