Best Vanguard Funds for 401(k) Retirement Savers

Vanguard dominates the 401(k) world. More of the company’s funds are among the list of the 100 most popular funds in workplace retirement plans than any other fund firm, says consulting firm BrightScope.

This year, 19 actively managed funds make the list – 10 are “traditional” mutual funds and nine are target-date funds, which we will analyze as a set.

We will look at some of the best Vanguard funds for your 401(k) and filter out some lesser options. We rate each “buy,” “sell” or “hold.” As always, symbols, expense ratios and trailing performance data are for the investor share class. Your 401(k) plan may offer a different share class, with lower fees.
