Leslie Corcoran: Originally what first came out were the target date retirement funds. These were a combination of investments using stocks, bonds and cash.

These funds as they get closer to that retirement date would just automatically reduce down from a higher concentration in stocks to a lower concentration of stocks…so that they become more conservative, because typically in retirement is when you're going to be using those funds and you don't want to be as highly invested in stocks at that time.
