CSU Presentations on Defined Contribution Plan “Asset Allocation Made Easier” Portfolios

The State of Connecticut and ING have teamed up with Morningstar Associates, a provider of investment advisory services for the retirement plan industry, to offer eight blended risk-based investment portfolios through the “Asset Allocation Made Easier” program for employees in the Defined Contribution Plans ( ARP, 403(b), 457). While using asset allocation as part of your investment strategy neither assures nor guarantees better performance and cannot protect against loss in declining markets, it is a well-recognized risk management strategy. However, not everyone may be comfortable, or feel they have the time, to map out a strategy on their own. These “Asset Allocation Made Easier” portfolios are designed to meet a specific risk profile and help make asset allocation easier.

Join ING Investment Adviser Marty Baron for an overview of the eight risk-based investment model portfolios. Please see the attached flyer and brochure for more information.

The schedule of presentations is as follows:


September 12
