Introducing a Gold Fund and Four Other New Funds to Our Investment Line-up


The core objectives of ShareBuilder 401k are to provide high quality, diverse and low expense funds so your money can work harder over time. That's why we've added five new funds to our line-up


In our annual review, we analyzed additional asset classes and how they have historically performed during different economic climates and then closely reviewed investments to select the appropriate funds in line with our low-cost philosophy. We also wanted to ensure we provide at least one fund that has solid historical performance and avoids “sin” industries (e.g. cigarette manufacturers) as many investors are looking for more socially responsible investment options.

The new funds include:

Asset Class New Fund Fund Ticker
Gold Commodity iShares Gold Trust IAU
Commodities Powershares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund DBC
Large Cap (socially conscious option) iShares MSCI USA ESG Select Social Index Fund KLD
International Bond SPDR Barclays Capital International Treasury Bond BWX
Emerging Market Bond PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio PCY

The ShareBuilder 401k line-up is now expanded from 15 Exchange-Traded Funds to 20. It also includes a money market option and the five model portfolios managed by the ShareBuilder Investment Committee.

If you would like to view more details on these or any investment options available from ShareBuilder 401k, please go to the investments tab.

There's no better time than right now to get on the road to saving!
