DCIIA's Retirement Research Center is pleased to announce the publication of our second custom target date fund (cTDF) study, which provides a previously unavailable overview of cTDFs. Included in the report are data and commentary on glide paths, performance, and allocations within vintages and by asset class (equity, fixed income, inflation-sensitive, and diversifiers).

Read the study, and access last year's edition, on our website:

The study includes data from 14 asset allocators reporting data for year-end 2018, 91 plans, and 958 unique funds. An investment option was considered a cTDF if it was tailored to the plan demographics, available exclusively to that plan's participant population, and valued daily.

We look forward to the study's continuing evolution over time, which will include expanding coverage of the cTDF universe as well as the incorporation of other data elements. If you have questions about the survey, please contact DCIIA RRC Executive Director Warren Cormier.
