Last night I spent some time looking at my 401k account to decide if I wanted to make any changes for the upcoming year. I have a 401k account managed by Vanguard and for the last few years, I've been contributing some money from each paycheck.
In recent years that money has been unevenly split between two of their funds:
However, in looking over recent performance data, I was less than impressed with the T. Rowe Price fund:
The LifeStrategy fund, however, has been doing reasonably well.
So looking through the options I've found a few others that look promising. The current leader is the William Blair International Growth fund.
It's the only internaional stock fund available in my plan, and given my interest in diversifying into foreign markets, I'm tempted to shift a chunk of my new investment dollars (those which will be contributed in 2006) into that fund rather than the T. Rowe Price fund.
However, I'm still poking around and checking out other funds. There are a total of 13 funds available in our plan, so I've got a few more to check out.
