We’ve discussed the importance of asset allocation to your success as an
investor. Harry Moscowitz won a Nobel prize for inventing modern port-

The big boost for target date funds came in 2006 when pension laws
changed so that employers could choose investments for employees who
had not designated investments for their 401(k) plans. Target date mutual
funds became the most popular investments for employers to offer and
to use as a default if employees failed to designate anything else. Fidel-
