Quick question I think I know the answer however would like some feedback from the forum. I opened in i401k with mysolo401k. I have set up a brokerage account with Schwab where I fund that i401k. In doing research I am comparing VTSAX vs SWTSX and they look to perform very similar with obviously different managers. I can but VTSAX through Schwab but pay $49.99 each purchase. SWTSX has no load no fees. I’m guessing the answer is no. Is that fee worth paying for VTSAX? Assets in VTSAX are around 40B and SWTSX are 9B. I’m think it doesnt matter quit as much which I pick but more that I fund the account.

You’re correct. Buy Schwab’s. No significant difference between the 2 funds. Buy the one that costs less.CordMcNallyParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 3052Joined: 01/03/2017
Buy Schwab. You should never pay a transaction fee like that in this day and age.

You can also check out Schwab’s target date index funds. They’re excellent fund-of-funds using their low fee index ETFs. Have a little bit of a small and emerging markets tilt and some REIT. A nice set it and forget it option.

Thanks I will do that! I have an 85/15 portfolio mix now and desire to keep that. Would setting it on a year to retire past my date likely get a greater percentage of stocks to bonds ?July 10, 2019 at 8:16 pm MST #229437
Yes I will make more than 6 lots so I now know your answer as well.
