I am thankful for this discussion board. Although new, I am learning a lot. Can anyone make a suggestion for the following?

History:
My company has contracted with Aetna Financial Services for retirement investing. I have been vested now for 10 years. I am considering putting 100% of my current and future contributions into an index fund (they are currently split between a Janus Aspen Aggessive Growth and Aetna Growth and Income). Unfortunately, Vanguard is not offered. Aetna has an Index Plus Small Cap, Mid Cap, and Large Cap (3 different) funds available.

Question:
If it were YOUR retirement money, would you select one of these Index funds or some Agressive Growth fund (i.e. like the Janus Aspen Agressive or PPI). I am 37 years old and plan to retire around 60-65.

I would appreciate any advice offered.

Sorry for the rather lengthy post.

Thank you in advance.

Hey riclala,

Welcome aboard. (Welcome 2board?)

My company requires me to put $60.00 per month into an fund with Lord, Abbett, & Co. Before I found the Fool, I just had it going into the default mix of stocks, bonds, market accounts, etc. After learning a bit, I moved it all into the most aggressive growth fund they had available.

They play with it a little bit, but it is basically a Nasdaq index fund. I was thrilled.

Maybe you could ask about that aggressive growth fund. You might get lucky like I did.

Wishing you the best,
Littlebush

Hi, riclala. If you haven't already done so, you might wish to visit the Index Funds board for some lively discussions on index investing:
