¹These are collective trust funds which are bank-maintained collective investment funds managed by Russell Trust Company, a Washington State non-depository trust company, and are not registered mutual funds. The funds are only available to certain qualified employee benefit plans and government plans and are not offered to the general public.

Target date fund investing involves risk, principal loss is possible. The principal value of the fund is not guaranteed at any time, including the target date. The target date is the approximate date when investors plan to retire and would likely stop making new investments in the fund.

Please remember that all investments carry some level of risk, including the potential loss of principal invested. They do not typically grow at an even rate of return and may experience negative growth. As with any type of portfolio structuring, attempting to reduce risk and increase return could, at certain times, unintentionally reduce returns.
