What are Target Risk Fund?
A target risk fund is a fund that attempts to expose its investors to a specified amount of risk. The fund manager of a target risk fund is responsible for overseeing all the securities owned within the fund, to ensure that the level of risk isn't greater or less than the fund's target amount of risk exposure. Target risk funds typically label themselves as ""conservative"", ""moderate risk"" or ""aggressive"" in terms of their risk exposure. Regardless of the label applied, the intent is to offer a relatively constant level of risk exposure to investors.
