Hi,
My son's opening up a 401k with a new employer and has sent me a list of the funds his company is offering.

Could someone please give me an idea as to what % might be invested in each type of fund that would make up a well rounded 401k portfolio?

He's in his late 20s and can afford to be fairly aggressive.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.
Pat
