SEC Seeks Comment on Investor Testing Regarding Target Date Retirement Funds-continued

April 3, 201-- The Securities and Exchange Commission today said it is seeking comment on the results of investor testing regarding target date retirement funds. The Commission will consider the comments before acting on a proposal it issued in 2010 intended to enhance the information provided to individuals investing in such funds
That proposed rule would generally require target date retirement funds to more prominently disclose the fund's asset allocation at the target date. Under the proposal, the disclosure would have to be placed adjacent to the fund's name the first time the name appears in marketing materials. The proposal also would require marketing materials for target date retirement funds to include a table, chart, or graph depicting the fund's asset allocation over time.
