Fund Rates


This chart is of the fund rates I have in my retirement portfolio.


My 401k charges me 0.35% per fund to use an outside brokerage. This sucks, but otherwise I am stuck with the choices available at the 401k site and they all have at least a 0.4% base.

Generally, I do not like to use anything so high as 0.50% or higher but the flexibility in the this case is worth it, barely 🙁

At least I will always have my TSP set at 0.03%

We (humans) are closer in time to the existence of Tyrannosaurus Rex then the T-Rex is to the existence of Stegosaurus. For real.
