Re: Target Date Fund as Bond Allocation

It is not necessary to have all 3 funds. You are creating an unnecessary overlap. The purpose of a target date fund is to have only one fund that contains the ideal allocation. If you want more bonds just buy more of your total bond fund. Get rid of your target date fund.
