Amerivest Launches Target Date Investment Portfolios
New offerings automatically adjust asset allocation recommendations over time OMAHA, NEB., April 26 /CNW/ - When it launched in 2003, the Amerivest advisory service provided an innovative way to take control of long-term financial goals. Through a proprietary five-step process, it combines ease and affordability to design tailored investment portfolios of exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Today, investors can take advantage of a new type of portfolio service, designed to make long-term financial planning even easier. TD AMERITRADE Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:AMTD) is pleased to announce Amerivest Target Date Investment Portfolios, the newest additions to the family of advisory services from Amerivest Investment Management, LLC. Asset weightings in each portfolio adjust based on recommendations intended to slowly reduce risk exposure. Over time, the focus moves to preserving capital for withdrawal. "Amerivest has helped individual investors understand that it's really not that tough to take control of your finances," said Dave Kelley, president, Retail Investor Group. "Whether you need the money in five years or thirty, these portfolios make planning for the long-term even less complicated and time-consuming than before." Six Amerivest Target Date Portfolios are currently available, each with strategies defined by an investment horizon. Portfolios with longer time horizons will have greater and longer initial equity exposure and experience greater volatility and risk. In addition to focusing on a Target Date, Amerivest can also tailor an ETF portfolio recommendation based on a client's goal, risk tolerance, time frame and budget. More information on Amerivest, including an online demonstration, is available under the "Planning and Retirement" section of www.tdameritrade.com.
