Video transcript:

Narrator: We’ve made it simple to start investing for your retirement.
Description: Monique is sitting on the couch in her living room with family, using her tablet.
Narrator: With our target date funds, all you need to do is decide when you want to retire, then select the fund closest to that year.
Description: Cut to view of the tablet. She swipes up to reveal a calendar. The calendar cycles through each year and lands on 2048.
Narrator: Let’s say you want to retire in 2048. You’d choose our 2050 target date fund.
Description: Cut to a pie chart of 2050 target date fund.
Narrator: Over the next few decades, the fund will gradually change from higher-risk to lower-risk investments.
Description: The pie chart moves to accommodate changes in risk type.
Narrator: For example, while you're still in your 30s, the fund uses higher-risk investments to help maximize growth.
Description: Cut to two line graphs, one for risk, the other for return. Age is shown from 30 to 65.
Narrator: As you get closer to your retirement, the fund uses more lower-risk investments to help protect your savings if the market falls.
Description: Both graphs start high then lower as age increases.
Narrator: A target date fund is a simple, hands-free approach to retirement savings.
Description: The frame zooms out to view Monique’s tablet and hands. Her hand swipes to reveal the My Canada Life at Work “Plans” screen with an RPP fund.
Narrator: You’ll get a mix of different investments and professional management, in one fund.
Description: She scrolls down to reveal asset mixes.
Narrator: It's practically effortless. Just choose one and relax.
Description: Return to Monique in her living room with family. She looks up from her tablet and smiles.
