My partner's job just started a 401k mutual fund plan (matching 20%). Because we're 30+ years from retirement, things I've read say we should be in an "agressive" fund. I think I'm willing to do that.I have about 10 fund options to choose from. Four of them have over 90% in stocks and the rest in cash. These funds claim they have "low risk" or "moderate risk" investment styles. Does this mean they are not considered "agressive"?I think I'm missing something here.The others are money market, bond, or balanced among stocks/bonds/cash, ranging from "low" to "high risk" investment styles.No index fund is available.Should we go for one of the 90% stock funds? (Smart Money gives them "B"s & "C"s). Or choose one of the more balanced funds (Smart Money graded one an "A"). I guess my question is: what's considered agressive? (And, should we be doing that?)Our only other investment is my 403b fixed annuity with ~$10,000 already in it; $50 is added each month.Any thoughts on how to chose will be greatly appreciated. TIA.MonicaAnn
