Description

Objective  

To offer high total return consistent with the Fund’s current asset allocation.

Principal Investment Strategies  

The Fund invests in a combination of other Vantagepoint Funds and one or more third party exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) using an asset allocation strategy designed for investors who expect to begin making gradual withdrawals from the Fund, typically at or after retirement (assumed to occur at age 60), in or around the year 2050. The Fund invests in a combination of equity, fixed income, and multi-strategy investments that the Fund’s investment adviser believes to be appropriate. Multi-strategy investments generally include asset classes and strategies that seek to provide additional diversification from traditional stocks and bonds. Examples may include convertible securities, derivative-based strategies, and real estate investment trusts (REITs), among others. As time elapses, the Fund’s allocation to equity and multi-strategy investments decreases and the Fund’s allocation to fixed income investments increases so that by June 30 of the year 2060 (10 years after the year indicated in the Fund’s name), the Fund’s net assets will be invested approximately 30% in equity funds, 63% in fixed income funds, and 7% in the multi-strategy fund.

The Fund’s allocations will change over time. The Fund invests in the following funds at target allocations within the current ranges indicated:

Fixed Income Fund:
FundAllocation Range:
Vantagepoint High Yield Fund0% - 6%

Equity Fund:
FundAllocation Range:
Vantagepoint Equity Income Fund19% - 29%
Vantagepoint Growth & Income Fund6% - 16%
Vantagepoint Growth Fund9% - 19%
Vantagepoint Select Value Fund0% - 6%
Vantagepoint Mid/Small Company Index Fund5% - 15%
Vantagepoint Aggressive Opportunities Fund0% - 6%
Vantagepoint Discovery Fund0% - 6%
Vantagepoint International Fund12% - 22%
Third Party Emerging Markets ETF0% - 5%

Multi-Strategy Fund:
FundAllocation Range:
Vantagepoint Diversifying Strategies Fund10% - 20%



Subject to the supervision of the Fund’s Board of Directors, the Fund’s investment adviser may, at its discretion, increase or decrease the target allocations to the underlying funds. The Fund’s investment adviser monitors the Fund’s allocations and will “rebalance” its portfolio as necessary to return the Fund to, or close to, the intended asset allocation.

The Fund is designed to “age” so that its asset allocation becomes more conservative over time until it achieves a final constant asset allocation approximately 10 years after the year 2050. This is intended to reduce investment risk as investors move towards and into retirement.

All percentages referred to above are based on the Fund’s net assets. The Fund invests in T Shares of the underlying Vantagepoint Funds.

This Fund may be appropriate for you if you plan to begin making gradual withdrawals from the Fund, typically at or after your retirement, in or around the year 2050.

The Fund is not a complete solution for all of your retirement savings needs. An investment in the Fund includes the risk of loss, including near, at or after the target date of the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide adequate income at and through an investor’s retirement. Selecting the Fund (or any Vantagepoint Fund) does not guarantee that you will have adequate savings for retirement.

Principal Investment Risks  

There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. You may lose money by investing in the Fund. The Fund’s principal investment risks include Asset Allocation Risk, Investing in Other Investment Companies, ETF Risks, Stock Market Risk, Foreign Securities Risk, Emerging Markets Securities Risk, High Yield Securities Risk, Small-Cap Securities Risk, Mid-Cap Securities Risk, Equity Income/Interest Rate Risk, Interest Rate Risk, Credit Risk, Asset-Backed Securities Risk, Convertible Securities Risk, Indexing Risk, Derivative Instruments Risk.

Fund past performance, as shown, is no guarantee of how the fund will perform in the future. The performance shown has been annualized for periods greater than one year. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. For current performance, visit www.icmarc.org.

Fund performance is shown comparing it to a "benchmark" which may be a (i) broad-based securities market index (ii) a group of mutual funds with similar investment objectives, or (iii) a short term government backed debt obligation such as a U.S. Treasury Bill. An index is not available for direct investment, is unmanaged, and does not reflect the costs of portfolio management or trading. A fund's portfolio may differ from the securities held in an index.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, fee waivers, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each 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 fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For funds with loads, the Morningstar rating on a load-waived basis is provided, when available. Load-waived ratings do not include any front- or back-end sales loads and are intended for investors that have access to such purchase terms. Funds with loads are waived for plans administered by ICMA-RC. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
