Are you by chance referring to a fund such as the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index fund, which mirrors the Wilshire 5000 Index? This Index, while more broadly diversified than the S+P500, is still heavily weighted toward the top handful of S+P large-cap stocks. I know of mid-cap and small-cap indices, but no other broad indices that specifically exclude the S+P500 stocks. Thanks-Tom
