For the past 20 year or so, I've been doing retirement investing in mutual funds through company plans and/or a planner. Now, I'd like to quit paying all those fees and so I'm looking at moving some of my retirement dollars into either Champion funds or Index funds. How do I decide which to do? I would consider myself 'moderately aggresive' in terms of risk tolerance and still have 20+ years to retirement. At first I thought I would just choose some from the sample Champion portfolios and let it go at that. However, now that I've been giving Index funds a closer look, I'm attracted to the low fees and good performance over time (the old 'slow and steady wins the race'). However, I hate to miss out on possible better returns that could come from the managed funds. Should I put some in the Index funds and some in the managed funds? Any suggestions??
