Q&A

What is a Smart Target Date Fund

Smart Target Date Fund is at the core a target date fund that over time shifts assets from equity to fixed income following a glide path.  The difference is that Smart Date funds shifts money from equity to fixed income as the equity market does well but not vice versa.  A standard target date fund shift money back and forth to get back to its glide path 

I got it, but why am I required to manage my money in a Smart Target Date Fund?

 A Smart Target Date Fund is designed to work efficiently with our guarantees.  It also meets Department Of Labor criteria for Qualified Default Investment Alternative 

Why is Gannuity needed?  Are you just another layer of fees?

Gannuity splits retirement risk and places market risk in a fund, not with an insurance company.  This split is key to reducing the cost of providing our product.  Gannuity also places the longevity risk among several insurance companies.  This competitive process improves the rate retirees get and diversifies their long term exposures to several insurance companies.  Lastly, Gannuity monitors daily that funds comply with stated asset allocation policies. 

How does Gannuity get paid?

  Gannuity charges an annual fee of 0.15% of assets it manages. 

Who provides the guarantee?

 Top tier insurance companies 

How do I know the insurance company will be there to provide me with a paycheck?

Gannuity deals only with top tier insurance companies.  We ensure that customers are diversified among several insurance companies.  Lastly, there are State funds that guarantees customers in case of an insurance company failure.
