Dear Chairman Schapiro:
"Never mind the fact that the majority of 401K's offer as a stable no risk investment -money markets! They are the only safe or safest investment choice in a 401K.
If this legislation is passed then a 401K will contain risk only investments. This flies in the face of prudent financial planning and inadvertently offers an investment product/service that favors the 401K vendor rather than serving the accountholder. What is worse is that the 401K is blessed by the government and considered a qualified plan. What a mess !
