FDIC

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects funds depositors place in member banks and savings associations from individual bank failures. FDIC manages the Deposit Insurance Fund, created from the premiums member banks pay. The FDIC also encourages stability in the financial system by promoting sound banking practices. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. The FDIC standard deposit insurance amount per depositor per insured depository institution for each account ownership category is $250,000.

No-load

A mutual fund which does not have a sales charge when you buy or sell shares.  Other fees and expenses apply to an investment in no-load Investor Class shares and are described in a fund’s current prospectus.

Target date funds

A target date fund is a mutual fund which represents the approximate year you hope to retire and begin withdrawing assets. The funds are diversified across a range of asset classes and investment styles to seek to gradually reduce market risk as the target date approaches, and after it arrives, by decreasing stock exposure and increasing bond and cash exposure. The principal value is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date.

Guidance

Guidance means an investment professional is available to help you understand which types of investments may be suitable for your goals.
