- Thought Leadership
The risk-based Great-West Profile Funds1, 2 can be selected to correlate with your investor style. The options available to you range from conservative to aggressive. When you choose one of these options, you get instant diversification and automatic rebalancing, which means that the fund's asset allocation is rebalanced periodically to ensure market forces don't cause it to get off track from its intended investment objective.*
In addition to the instant diversification and automatic rebalancing, there are two additional benefits you get when you select a risk-based Great-West Profile Fund:
- Professional Management – The Great-West Profile Funds are professionally managed by portfolio managers who monitor the fund performance, analyze the underlying funds in each asset class quarterly, and adjust the mix at least once annually.
- Convenience – The Great-West Profile Funds are ready-made investments. You choose the investment fund that matches your risk comfort, ranging from conservative to aggressive.
While you can invest in any of Empower Retirement IRA's other investment options at the same time, selecting just one risk-based Great-West Profile Funds may be all you really need—or want.
If you choose a risk-based Great-West Profile Fund, you should still regularly review your investment options, risk tolerance and goals, and make adjustments if your personal circumstances change.
Please consider the investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses carefully before investing. For this and other important information, you may obtain mutual fund prospectuses and/or disclosure documents from your registered representative. Read them carefully before investing.
