TSP I Fund News and Finance Friday Articles

Posted on Updated on

This one is certainly interesting for anyone who invests in the TSP I Fund, its international stock index fund:

Trump orders federal retirement money invested in Chinese equities to be pulled

And then they put out this update:

Board defers action on I Fund transition — (May 13, 2020) Due to a meaningfully different economic environment related in large part to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the nomination of three new Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board Members, pending further study, the Board is delaying the implementation of the I Fund benchmark change to the MSCI ACWI ex-U.S. Investible Market index from the MSCI EAFE index.

This is why I try to keep all of my international stock holdings at Vanguard in their total international stock fund, which includes emerging markets like China.
