ING Solution Portfolios

  • A portfolio is chosen based on your goal retirement year and risk tolerance, and ING’s professional investment managers do the rest.

  • Professional fund managers can be more aggressive for those with a longer time horizon and are more conservative with those with a shorter time horizon.

  • Over time, the asset allocations within each Portfolio become more conservative as the participant moves closer to the time they may want to withdraw the assets to help fund their retirement.
