Description

Objective  

High total return consistent with the fund's current asset allocation.

Principal Investment Strategies  

The Fund invests in a combination of other MissionSquare Funds Class M and third party exchange traded funds (ETFs). The Fund uses an asset allocation strategy designed for investors who expect to begin making withdrawals from their investment, typically at or after retirement (assumed to occur at age 62), in or around the year stated in the Fund's name. As time elapses, the Fund's allocation to equity and multi-strategy investments decreases and its allocation to fixed income investments increases such that the asset allocation becomes more conservative over time until it reaches a final constant asset allocation approximately ten years after the year in its name. The Fund invests in a combination of equity, fixed income, and multi-strategy investments that its investment advisor believes to be appropriate.

The MissionSquare Retirement Target Funds (Target Funds) are target date funds. Each Target Fund is a fund of funds that invests in a combination of other MissionSquare Funds and third party ETFs (each an underlying fund). By investing in this way, each Target 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 Target Fund’s assets among underlying funds and the asset classes they represent is determined by MissionSquare Investments (MSQI), the investment advisor to both the Target Funds and the underlying MissionSquare Funds. Over time, MSQI will adjust the asset allocation of each dated Target Fund to seek to become more conservative as the year designated in its name approaches and for approximately 10 years beyond the designated year. This is intended to reduce investment risk as investors move toward and into retirement. However, there is no guarantee that this goal will be achieved and investors may lose money investing in the Target Funds. Ten years after the date in the Target Fund’s name, it will reach its landing point and its target asset allocation becomes constant. It is expected that when a Target Fund reaches its landing point it will merge with the MissionSquare Retirement Target Income Fund.

The asset allocation changes that occur over time as depicted in the accompanying Glide Path are referred to as neutral targets because they do not reflect decisions that may be made by MSQI to overweight or underweight a particular asset class based on market or operational factors. The neutral targets also do not reflect performance differences between the Fund’s asset allocations that will cause temporary deviations from the neutral targets. The actual asset class allocation of the Fund may vary from the neutral target by as much as +/- ten percentage points for the fixed income & stable value and equity classes as a result of MSQI’s allocation decisions, performance differences between asset classes of the Fund, or some combination thereof, although the multi-strategy asset class will generally not exceed 7 percentage points of the Fund's total assets.

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, participants or plan sponsors in a MissionSquare Retirement administered account can log in at www.icmarc.org, or institutions can go to www.vantagepointfunds.org.

Performance information for this class prior to its inception date is the performance of the Fund adjusted to reflect the estimated fees and expenses of this class.

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.

Morningstar RatingTM   As of Dec 31, 2021
Period Stars Category Size
Overall 3 Stars200
3-Year 3 Stars200
5-Year 3 Stars164
10-Year 3 Stars85

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.
