  • Vanguard 500 institutional index
  • T Rowe price growth stock
  • Boston company large cap
  • Vanguard Windsor II Admiral

Thanks in advance.

Abhinav, does your plan offer an "under the mattress" option?

Did you read the advice in the several other "How to select funds in my 401(k)?" threads? The same advice applies to you. What do you think after reading those threads?
