We would be pleased to discuss our solutions, products, and capabilities with you. Speak to one of our DCIO sales consultants to learn more about CITs and, more specifically, about which T. Rowe Price CITs may be suitable.


The T. Rowe Price Retirement Trusts, Target Trusts, and Retirement Blend Trusts ("CITs") are not mutual funds. They are collective investment trusts established by T. Rowe Price Trust Company under Maryland banking law, and their units are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933. Investments in the CITs are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, the U.S. government or its agencies or T. Rowe Price Trust Company and are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of principal.

The principal value of the Retirement Trusts is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target date, which is the approximate year an investor plans to retire (assumed to be age 65) and likely stop making new investments in the trust. If an investor plans to retire significantly earlier or later than age 65, the trusts may not be an appropriate investment even if the investor is retiring on or near the target date. The trusts’ allocations among a broad range of underlying T. Rowe Price stock and bond trusts will change over time. The trusts emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of retirement asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focus on supporting an income stream over a long-term post-retirement withdrawal horizon. The trusts are not designed for a lump-sum redemption at the target date and do not guarantee a particular level of income. The trusts maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target date, which can result in greater volatility over shorter time horizons.
