The recently assembled portfolio management team behind Nationwide’s Investor Destinations target-risk series has settled into its role. However, the strategy’s supporting cast continues to lack similar stability, and the series’ evolving line-up merits a watchful eye. The cheapest share classes across the series’ five funds receive a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral, while the more expensive C shares and R shares (conservative and moderately aggressive funds) earn Negative.
