Anyone have VIIIX in their 401k?
« on: July 04, 2013, 01:36:16 PM »
Vanguard Institutional Index Instl Pl

Expense ration is 0.02%

Does the 1,3, 5 and 10 year return rates include reinvested dividends?  I would assume so.

What's your question? 

Investment returns stated over past periods typically include dividends reinvested.

VIIIX is one of the best things you can find in your 401(k) menu.

I recently moved $45k into VIIIX reallocating away from bonds.

For comparisons with other funds including reinvested dividends, I use Morningstar:

I just looked that up and it looks awesome, but, um, it says the minimum initial investment is $200,000,000. :/
I'm missing something.

So the minimum you see there applies to the aggregate investments in the fund from the entire institution, I believe, not from each individual investor.
