2022 Fund and Share Class Changes

Fund and Share Class Changes

Effective Market Close on March 11, 2022

In a continual effort to assist you in meeting your retirement goals, the Colorado Retirement Association Board of Directors worked with Innovest Portfolio Solutions LLC to make the following changes to the investment options available in the CRA 401(a) and 457(b) Plans.

Old Investment Option
New Investment Option
Similar Investment
Style & Objective
Rationale
Vanguard Institutional Index I (VIIIX)
Fidelity 500 Index (FXAIX)YesLowering Fees from 0.02% to 0.015%
Vanguard Mid Cap Index I (VMCIX)
Fidelity Mid Cap Index (FSMDX)YesLowering Fees from 0.04% to 0.025%
Vanguard Small Cap Index I (VSCIX)
Fidelity Small Cap Index (FSSNX)YesLowering Fees from 0.04% to 0.025%
Fidelity Low Priced Stock (FLPSX)
Fidelity Low Priced Stock K6 (FLKSX)
YesLowering Fees from 0.65% to 0.50%1

1 Fidelity lowered the fees from 0.78% to 0.65% on FLPSX in the fourth quarter of 2021.

While not completely identical, both Fidelity and Vanguard seek to track similar indices as closely as possible, so each fund will generally provide performance similar to the index they follow. These similar approaches present a unique opportunity to reduce fund expenses while not materially changing the investment style.
