Tier 1: Target Allocation Funds
Instant investment diversification
Our Tier 1 funds are built for RPB participants who want a simple way to invest. Each of the five funds provides a complete, diversified portfolio in a single fund. That is why you will likely need only one of the Tier 1 funds to achieve the asset allocation you want.
Each fund has its own investment objective—growth, growth and income, or income—to align with a participant’s retirement goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance. And each invests in a well-diversified, fixed percentage of equities and fixed income so that you can step down your risk as you move closer to and through retirement.
RPB’s investment advisory firm, NEPC, which is guided by RPB’s Investment Committee and our Jewish Values Investing Policy, recommends the asset allocation and managers for our target allocation funds.
Selecting a fund from the new Tier 1 lineup
To invest in Tier 1, simply select the one fund that aligns most closely to your current investment objective, time horizon, and tolerance for risk, and you’re done! You’ll have a diversified portfolio for your RPB retirement plan.
RPB Focused Growth Fund
(Formerly: RPB Capital Appreciation Fund)
Target allocation: 95% equities, 5% fixed income
This is the most aggressive of the Tier 1 funds. Its high growth and high-volatility strategy is designed to produce principal growth over a longer time period. The fund invests in a broad assortment of assets that have historically generated returns greater than income-oriented investments but also have greater volatility than income-oriented investments.

RPB Moderate Growth Fund
Target allocation: 75% equities, 25% fixed income
This is the second-most aggressive of our target allocation funds. Its moderate-volatility strategy is designed to achieve meaningful increases in account value with a lower level of volatility than the plan’s most aggressive fund. Read the fact sheet
RPB Growth and Income Fund
(Formerly: RPB Appreciation & Income Fund)
Target allocation: 55% equities, 45% fixed income
The RPB Growth and Income Fund seeks both principal growth and income. Its moderate growth and volatility strategy is designed to achieve meaningful increases in account value with a lower level of volatility than the plan’s most aggressive funds. Read the fact sheet
RPB Moderate Income Fund
Target allocation: 35% equities, 65% fixed income
The RPB Moderate Income Fund is the second-most conservative of the Tier 1 funds. Its low- to moderate-volatility strategy is designed to generate income, keep pace with inflation and generate some growth through a modest exposure to equities. Although principal value may fluctuate, the frequency and severity of losses incurred by similar portfolios have historically been less than those of growth-oriented investments. Read the fact sheet

Building a customized portfolio with multiple Tier 1 funds
If your circumstances call for an asset mix that's different from the Tier 1 pre-built mixes, this chart shows you how to properly use multiple Tier 1 funds to achieve your desired asset allocation. You can also combine the Tier 1 funds with the funds in Tier 2 or Tier 3. We suggest you consult with a financial professional.
