Thanks for your input. Our retirement dept is telling me the same thing. It is disappointing that we can't use these low cost, well diversified investments instead of mutual funds. Long term costs are much lower than even the Vanguard-type index funds and you have access to sector indexes. Have a good weekend.
I was wondering if anyone has any info on the eligibility of the ishares index funds for 403b accounts. They are listed as funds, but are not RIC's. I have been unable to find anything that specifically lists if they are eligible. They have such low expense ratios that they seem like very viable alternatives to actively managed funds. Thanks
