Fidelity Freedom Funds
Fidelity Freedom Funds are an investment alternative for people who don’t have the time nor the desire to manage their own retirement portfolio. For novice and experienced investors alike, these funds represent a simple-yet-sophisticated retirement strategy that takes most of the work out of the retirement investing process.

…Fidelity Freedom Funds® are doing for retirement saving.
Fidelity Freedom Funds® could help you reach your destination with a minimum of effort on your part. The funds provide a way to have your retirement portfolio professionally managed and risk controlled, with all the research and rebalancing done for you. Simply select a Freedom fund with the target date closest to the year you plan to retire, and use the fund as a retirement saving strategy or as a supplement to your portfolio.
Each Freedom fund invests in other well-known Fidelity® mutual funds. The investment allocation is gradually and automatically shifted to become more conservative the closer it gets to its target date. You will still need to monitor your portfolio, but everything else is essentially taken care of for you.

As part of a series of empowering workshops under the umbrella Investing for Women (which I also wrote the main presentation script for), an invitation was created and mailed to a targeted audience of professional women in key markets across the country. Given the very high number of people who responded and attended, this program was considered to be a great success.

Retirement Savings Plan Checklist:
Save More and Lower Your Current Income Taxes. Today's deferral limits are higher and more flexible than ever. Contributing even a little more today could lower your current taxable income and increase your retirement savings for the future.
Take advantage of the "Age 50+ Catch-Up" Provision. One of the benefits of being 50 or older is the opportunity to save more toward your retirement. If your plan allows and you are eligible, consider making larger contributions to your workplace savings accounts. If could make a big difference to you financially when it comes time to retire.
Consolidate your retirement assets. As you near retirement, keeping track of your retirement investments can be a challenge. But changes in the tax law mean that your workplace savings accounts are more portable than ever. If your plan allows, consider rolling over your eligible workplace savings assets from former employers into your current plan. It can help simplify the management of your retirement assets, help you track investment performance, and maintain your asset allocation strategy.

Freedom is......the feeling you get when you've found an answer.
Fidelity Freedom Funds ®.
They could be the answer you've been looking for.
Fidelity Freedom Funds offer a simple, structured and flexible way to define your retirement whether you're an experienced investor or a novice. The Freedom Funds use a sophisticated investment strategy that simplifies the investment decision making process. The beauty of it is you have the freedom to carry on with the other things in your life with the confidence of knowing that your retirement portfolio is being professionally managed with your retirement time horizon in mind.
Freedom is...a sophisticated investment strategy.
Each of the five Freedom Funds, with a targeted retirement date, invests in a diversified mix of well-known Fidelity equity (stocks), fixed income (bonds) and money market funds (short-term investments). The asset allocation of each fund is continuously adjusted to become more conservative as it gets closer to the fund's target date. A sixth fund, Fidelity Freedom Income Fund, for those who are already retired, seeks to provide current income throughout the individual's retirement - and that could be 10, 20 or 30 years into the future.
Freedom is...a simple, single retirement option.
Simple, because if you decide that the Freedom Funds are right for you, just choose the fund that's closest to your planned retirement date, or the one that best matches your risk tolerance and retirement goals. Single, because you may only need to choose one investment option instead of having to take the time to build a diversified portfolio on your own. See the portfolios in the "How the funds work" section on the back of this piece.
How the funds work:
Each Fidelity Freedom Fund has its own target time horizon - 2000, 2010, 2020, 2030, 2040 - and is designed to gradually adopt a more conservative asset allocation strategy over time. Fidelity Freedom Income Fund seeks to provide high current income and potential capital appreciation.
