Target Pro™ Portfolios

An innovative, modern approach to managed accounts

Typical managed accounts require employees to take action. Unfortunately, many times that doesn’t happen. Securian Financial offers a different path with Target Pro Portfolios.

Target Pro Portfolios, which require no employee engagement, maximize personalization to manage risk tolerance and help employees of all ages reach their retirement income goals at a reasonable price.

Target Pro Portfolios investment process

Financial professionals have the freedom to choose their preferred degree of involvement when it comes to populating the allocations. Core investments of the plan can be used, or external investment portfolios can be created to help support the use of preferred arrays across multiple clients.2

Target Pro Portfolios development process

Step 1

Stadion or financial professional select up to 15 investment options for use in Target Pro Portfolios and determine asset allocations to equities, fixed income, etc.

Step 2

Participant data flows from Securian to Stadion e.g., age, gender, compensation, retirement asset balance, employee savings rate, employer contribution, location

Step 3

Stadion applies proprietary algorithms to assign participants to individual investment portfolios.

Step 4

Participants are moved into their personalized investment portfolio.

Target Pro Portfolios make a fiduciary-friendly Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA) since they automatically leverage employee data and create personalized strategies for individuals failing to make an investment election. And the reasonable cost provides assurances to plan fiduciaries that it is a prudent QDIA choice.
