I don't like this company for handling employer sponsored 401k's. All their funds are private and as such are not regulated by the SEC. You cannot get a straight answer from the customer service reps about how much they charge in fees. The documentation on their web site about their funds is outdated and incomplete. Most egregious of all because their funds are not listed on any exchange you cannot get a feel for how they are performing relative to their peers. I cannot in good faith recommend them as stewards of anyones retirement money. Go with a company like T. Rowe Price or Vanguard where everything is open and clear.

These folks have handled my 401K plan with two different employers. Maybe that is telling me right there what a good company they are since I keep running into them. They have a vast array of investment options and the web site is wonderful. You can log onto the website and handle almost any and every transaction you might have. If you cannot get it straightened out through their website the customer service team that works for them are excellent. They are very knowledgeable and will help you with any problem you may have right away. When I got laid off from my first job and had to handle my own 401k they were VERY HELPFUL. They did my transactions and they did them in a timely fashion. Whether you are investing through an employer or investing on your own, this is an excellent and knowledgeable group of investors to handle your cash.
