This is impossible to do without information about what your goals are, how risk averse you are, etc. You need to create an investing plan and an asset allocation, then start picking funds.

I am in my early 30s and ok with high risk.  I guess I am just wondering if anyone can help with what would stand out to them on this list.  My wife and I also have IRAs that are maxed and a couple taxable accounts with Vanguard that I love.  I just don't like our options here and wasn't sure what to go with.  Again, I would be ok with risk as I am still fairly young.

Voya often offers a TD Ameritrade Self Directed Brokerage Account... look in your documentation or account online and see if you can set this up. Cost is usually lower than Voya's fund fees and you can invest in commission free Vanguard ETFs.

Please post the Expense Ratios (yearly fees) along with the funds. If you have trouble finding them on the website, you can look them up on morningstar.com
