A life cycle fund is a mutual fund which automatically reduces its risk over time to coincide with the age of the owner. As the investor gets closer to retirement, an appropriately selected life cycle fund will become more conservative, selling stocks and purchasing more fixed income investments, in recognition that a reduced risk profile is appropriate for someone nearing retirement. Very similar to a target date fund.
