Investment options for how you want to save

We want you to be able to make informed decisions when investing your hard-earned money so it can steadily grow over time.

CalSavers offers a range of investment options, from aggressive investments seeking higher returns to conservative investment options that seek to protect the principal. When you invest in CalSavers, you get access to high quality mutual funds and other investment options, the value of which will vary with market conditions.

Your initial contributions

Unless you select another option, your first $1,000 in contributions will be invested in the CalSavers Money Market Fund and subsequent contributions will be invested in a target retirement date fund based on your age. You can decide at any time whether to keep your investment in this fund or choose from a simple menu of other investment options.

Below is the list of funds in which you can invest.

Target Retirement Funds

Investment Options that correspond with the year closest to when you will be the target retirement age, defined as age 65. Each Target Retirement Fund has a specific “target date” (e.g., 2035, 2045, 2055) and invests in an Underlying Fund that is composed of a mix of stock and bond funds. The Investment Options seek to provide for retirement outcomes based on quantitatively measured risk. The Investment Options will be broadly diversified across global asset allocations that automatically become more conservative over time as an investor nears target retirement age.

The investment objective of the State Street Equity 500 Index Fund (the “Equity 500 Fund”) is to replicate as closely as possible, before expenses, the performance of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (the “S&P 500” or the “Index”).
