Greetings Rebecca,

I have a question. You mentioned there are similar funds from Aetna. I'm just wondering if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I think it may be a good thing in that you can research how well the company has done in the past. To some degree there should be the question of getting an idea of how much risk and consistency there is in the fund and so if you can investigate the manager of the fund this can help and since ING funds are managed by Aetna this helps in the research.

Needless to say this doesn't mean the funds themselves are good or bad, just that there is more data to work from in building an opinion.

You seemed to be writing that info for people who would know and I don't.

No, I was pointing out what was an interesting tidbit then. An update of that is that some of Aetna's funds have been renamed so that the Aetna Index Plus Large Cap I is ING Index Plus Large Cap I with the ticker of AELIX that you could look at some information on about the fund.

You're Welcome,
