Amerivest Launches Target Date Investment Portfolios

    New offerings automatically adjust asset allocation recommendations over

    OMAHA, NEB., April 26 /CNW/ - When it launched in 2003, the Amerivest
advisory service provided an innovative way to take control of long-term
financial goals. Through a proprietary five-step process, it combines ease and
affordability to design tailored investment portfolios of exchange-traded
funds (ETFs). Today, investors can take advantage of a new type of portfolio
service, designed to make long-term financial planning even easier.

    TD AMERITRADE Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:  AMTD) is pleased to announce
Amerivest Target Date Investment Portfolios, the newest additions to the
family of advisory services from Amerivest Investment Management, LLC. Asset
weightings in each portfolio adjust based on recommendations intended to
slowly reduce risk exposure. Over time, the focus moves to preserving capital
for withdrawal.

    "Amerivest has helped individual investors understand that it's really
not that tough to take control of your finances," said Dave Kelley, president,
Retail Investor Group. "Whether you need the money in five years or thirty,
these portfolios make planning for the long-term even less complicated and
time-consuming than before."

    Six Amerivest Target Date Portfolios are currently available, each with
strategies defined by an investment horizon. Portfolios with longer time
horizons will have greater and longer initial equity exposure and experience
greater volatility and risk.

    In addition to focusing on a Target Date, Amerivest can also tailor an
ETF portfolio recommendation based on a client's goal, risk tolerance, time
frame and budget. More information on Amerivest, including an online
demonstration, is available under the "Planning and Retirement" section of
