Dan Danford, CFP® and Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Family Investment Center, has been advising how to invest 401(k) and retirement plans for years. In the video below, he answers this question about what to do when dissatisfied with your 401(k) funds:
I want to shift my money to different funds within the plan. When making this decision, which do you think I should focus on more: the funds' expenses or the returns the funds have earned?
Danford explains why you should focus on expenses first, but that there is an important caveat when it comes to ensuring you are comparing apples to apples with different 401(k) funds.
