I am thankful for this discussion board. Although new, I am learning a lot. Can anyone make a suggestion for the following?

History:
My company has contracted with Aetna Financial Services for retirement investing. I have been vested now for 10 years. I am considering putting 100% of my current and future contributions into an index fund (they are currently split between a Janus Aspen Aggessive Growth and Aetna Growth and Income). Unfortunately, Vanguard is not offered. Aetna has an Index Plus Small Cap, Mid Cap, and Large Cap (3 different) funds available.

Question:
If it were YOUR retirement money, would you select one of these Index funds or some Agressive Growth fund (i.e. like the Janus Aspen Agressive or PPI). I am 37 years old and plan to retire around 60-65.

I would appreciate any advice offered.

Sorry for the rather lengthy post.

Thank you in advance.
