ABSTRACT
The article discusses the criticism of target-date funds for retirement savings. After the financial crisis of 2008-2009 many financial experts expected investors to lose confidence in target-date funds but according to the investment research firm Morningstar Inc. that is not the case. The Morningstar 2010 Target-Date Series Industry Survey found that over 40 million dollars in new cash entered the funds in 2009.
