ING U.S. Introduces Game App That Teaches Investing And Retirement Saving Concepts

Players of STRUCT are introduced to each of the 12 game levels by an instruction guide – who provides tips that challenge the player to work with different building material and crewmembers.  Each level brings new complexity, and the right combination of crew, material placement and speed helps the player score points and unlock achievements.  There are also surprise moves one can discover as they engage in play – including breakage, bonus points and the ability to discard a crewmember's building material.  The "Build School" brings the metaphors to life, demonstrating how investor style and asset classes can impact the outcome, while the game's glossary helps to build knowledge of key financial terms.

The "target date" is the approximate date when an investor plans to start withdrawing their money.  When their target date is reached, they may have more or less than the original amount invested.  For each target-date portfolio, until the day prior to its target date, the portfolio will seek to provide total returns consistent with an asset allocation targeted for an investor who is retiring in approximately each portfolio's designated target year.  On the target date, the portfolio will seek to provide a combination of total return and stability of principal.  There is no guarantee that any investment option will achieve its stated objective.  Principal value fluctuates and there is no guarantee of value at any time, including the target date.
