    • Just 32% of fund managers expect the global economy to strengthen over the next twelve months, according to the latest BAML Fund Manager Survey. It's the weakest showing in two years. Alongside, corporate earnings expectations are the poorest in 18 months.
    • As a result, money managers have slashed overweight equity allocations to a two-year low of 34%, cut emerging market exposure for the first time in five years, boosted fixed-income holdings, gotten more underweight commodities, and raised cash levels to 4.9%.
    • “Cash balances are high, but investors are retreating to benchmark positions rather than staging an exodus from markets,” says BAML's top market honcho Michael Hartnett.
    • With interest rates scraping zero across the developed world, just 18% of those surveyed believe monetary policy is too stimulative. Yikes!

    Target date funds, which are supposed to limit portfolio risk as their end date approaches, have been singled out by the SEC's Mary Schapiro as not sufficiently warning investors about possible downside risks. In 2008, funds dated "2010" lost 24% on average, despite investor assumptions the funds would be heavily invested in bonds so close to their end date.

TDH vs. ETF Alternatives
TDH Description
Deutsche X-trackers 2020 Target Date ETF (TDH) is a lifecycle fund designed for investors planning for a life event or retirement in 2020. TDH invests in a variety of asset classes and gradually shifts from the initial portfolio allocation to a more conservative allocation in order to prudently maximize capital appreciation as the fund's target date approaches.TDH seeks investment results generally corresponding to the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Zacks 2020 Lifecycle Index-a passively managed, rules based methodology comprised of publicly traded common stock, bonds and ADRs developed by Zacks Investment Research. Index constituents represent a diversified group of securities from three broad asset classes: international equities, domestic equities and fixed income. db X-trackers Target Date Funds offer no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful investing. Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses.
