The Voya Target Retirement 2025 Fund Offers

Participant Focused Glide Path

Multi-Manager*

Active/Passive Blend

A Portfolio that Adjusts as Participants’ Careers Progress

At Voya, our glide path relative to peers has a higher equity allocation for younger participants to build wealth and a lower equity allocation for participants near and in retirement to reduce risk in those critical years. Younger participants can afford to take on more investment risk in exchange for greater potential returns. However, in the later years, participants are more vulnerable to a market downturn, particularly the day they retire.

The Portfolio may periodically deviate from the Target Allocation, generally within the range of +/- 10% relative to the current Target Allocation. The sub-adviser may determine to deviate by a wider margin in order to protect the Portfolio, achieve its investment objective, or to take advantage of particular opportunities. This chart is for illustrative purposes only and may not reflect the current allocations of the Voya Target Solution Trust Series. This illustration is intended to show how the Voya Target Solution Trust Series transitions over time.

Disclosures

Principal Risks

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.

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.

Stocks are more volatile than bonds, and portfolios with a higher concentration of stocks are more likely to experience greater fluctuations in value than portfolios with a higher concentration in bonds. Foreign stocks and small- and mid-cap stocks may be more volatile than large-cap stocks. Investing in bonds also, entails credit risk and interest rate risk. Generally investors with longer timeframes can consider assuming more risk in their investment portfolio.

As with any portfolio, you could lose money on your investment in a Voya Target Retirement Fund. Although asset allocation seeks to optimize returns given various levels of risk tolerance, you still may lose money and experience volatility. Market and asset class performance and the assumptions used form the asset allocations for the Voya Target Retirement Fund. There is risk that you could achieve better returns in an underlying portfolio or other portfolios representing a single asset class than in the Voya Target Retirement Fund. Important factors to consider when planning for retirement include your expected expenses, sources of income, and available assets. Before investing in the Voya Target Retirement Fund, weigh your objectives, time horizon, and risk tolerance. The Voya Target Retirement Fund invests in many underlying portfolios which are exposed to the risks of different areas of the market. The higher a portfolio’s allocation to stocks, the greater the risk. Diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
