Hello again MTBer, glad you found your way back. ;-) From what your last post says, I can tell you were invested in bond, small cap value, large cap value and international funds. The other 4 I had to guess. Aggressive growth usually means either a large cap or a mid cap growth fund. I looked on M* to see what most funds with 'capital appreciation' were invested in. I saw growth, blend, large cap and mid cap, so I'm not sure. I have no clue about special opportunities, although a guess would be growth, and I can only guess capital asset would be some sort of cash vehicle. So you had growth, value, large cap, small cap, bond and maybe mid cap. That seems to be a diversified mix. But (there always is one) next you have to assess each of these funds. If these funds are poor funds, or if their expense ratios are outrageous, it makes little sense to utilize them.

You really can't go wrong with a quality equity index fund. If you can find a couple decent funds among the ones available to you in your 401k to complement the one you have, you'll be better off than a great majority of investors out there.

HTH and good luck to you,
