The Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan offers a variety of investment options, including:

Individual Mutual Funds

Bullet PointSelect among 20 individual mutual funds from the Ivy Investments family, including domestic and international equity funds, specialty funds, and fixed-income funds.

Age-Based Portfolios

Bullet PointOffers six Age-Based Portfolios: Aggressive, Growth, Balanced, Conservative, Income, and Fixed Income. The account balance is automatically exchanged to the next Age-Based Portfolio within 30 days of the beneficiary's 5th, 9th, 12th, 15th, and 19th birthdays.

Bullet PointThe Age-Based Portfolios are customized based on the Designated Beneficiary's college time horizon and seeks an appropriate level of investment risk for that time horizon. These Portfolios are designed to transition investments from equity-focused holdings to more fixed-income holdings, as the Designated Beneficiary ages, in an effort to help reduce the risk of loss when capital preservation is needed most.

Static Portfolios

Bullet PointOffers the six actively managed Static Portfolios which allow an investor to select a comfortable risk level and its corresponding investment portfolio. Static Portfolios allows you to stay in the portfolio of your chosen risk horizon without automatically transferring you to the next Age-Based Portfolio.

The Arizona Family College Savings Plan is not insured by the State of Arizona or any of the program providers. Neither the principal deposited nor the investment return is guaranteed by the State of Arizona or the program providers.
