Fidelity equivalent of Vanguard Admiralty?

Post by Brit » Sat Dec 08, 2018 12:54 pm

Anyone know if Fido has an equivalent of VTSAX, VBTLX and VTIAX?

Have IBM 401k which is all in Fido, and it strikes me that I could possibly reduce annual expenses.

Fido has already consolidated share classes for most funds to the lowest cost class, in many cases they are cheaper than their Admiral counterparts.

See https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Fidelity

But also right on the splash page of Fidelity.com Fidelity makes a comparison of their index funds to Vanguard index funds. I guess if I was the head of Fidelity marketing I would have to kill myself for being such a failure.

IBM 401k has Vanguard institutional target funds with very low expenses, look under "expanded choice mutual funds" - ie. "VANG INST TR 2050 (VTRLX)".

I know nothing about IBM but generally with 401k accounts your investment choices are different from retail. With the changes Fidelity is implementing your choices might change in the near future - but still not be the same as retail.
