As a client approaches retirement, a client will often reduce their risk and at the same time reduce their rate of return earned on an account. Glide Paths allow for configuring changing rates of return as a person gets closer to retirement. A Glide Path may also optionally include a retirement rate of return. (TRAK ships with default glide paths that may be reconfigured, based on an advisor's preferences).
To review the available pre-built Glide Path models, click on the down-arrow to the right of the model name field.
