Who Should Invest: A moderate portfolio is appropriate for an investor with a moderately high risk tolerance and a time horizon longer than 5 years. Moderate investors are willing to accept periods of moderate market volatility (ups and downs in account value) in exchange for the possibility of receiving returns that outpace inflation by a significant margin.

Example Allocation by Mutual Fund Category:
40% Large-cap stock (Index)
10% Small-cap stock
15% Foreign Stock
30% Intermediate-term Bond
05% Cash/Money Market
