Do you work for a large government entity or corporation? Are you looking for an independent review of your company’s 401k plan or maybe some investment suggestions? I just ran across 401khelp.com, which does just that for a large list of companies, including for example Bank of America, Boeing, ChevronTexaco, Cingular Wireless, Cisco Systems, Citigroup, Costco, Dow Chemical, General Motors, Hewlett Packard, Home Depot, Honeywell, IBM, Microsoft, Nike, and the U.S. Government.
I wouldn’t follow their fund suggestions blindly, but it’s something to consider. They do seem to promote low-cost index funds overall, but also like some actively managed ones as well. This is part of a larger site, FundAdvice.com, which I’m still perusing. I am intrigued by their suggested portfolios, especially their Vanguard ones since it’s close to my portfolio, but I haven’t entirely figured out their philosophy behind them yet.
