Principal Investment Strategies

Target Risk Funds: The VT Vantagepoint Model Portfolio Funds are target risk funds. Each invests substantially all of its assets in a single VT III Vantagepoint Model Portfolio Fund (“Model Portfolio Fund”) that shares its name and investment objective. In turn, each underlying Model Portfolio Fund is a “fund of funds” that invests substantially all of its assets in other VT III Vantagepoint Funds. By investing in this way, each Model Portfolio Fund is exposed to the risks as well as the potential rewards of its underlying funds and of the portfolio holdings and strategies of those funds.

The targeted allocation of each underlying Model Portfolio Fund’s assets among underlying funds and the asset classes they represent is determined by ICMA-RC, the investment adviser to the VT III Vantagepoint Funds.

Morningstar Information

Morningstar RatingTM   As of Sep 30, 2017
Period Stars Category Size
Overall 4 Stars703
3-Year 3 Stars703
5-Year 3 Stars583
10-Year 4 Stars320

The Morningstar Rating™ 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.
