WSJ Smiles on Two Fund Firms, Frowns on Target Dates

by: Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

A new month has dawned, and so it's time for the Wall Street Journal's monthly Investing in Funds report. The March edition offers two profiles, one of a fund firm and one of a fund, while focusing some attention on the retirement plan markets and money funds.

Tom Lauricella urges readers not to "write off" Turner Investment Partners, manager of Turner Large Cap Growth and former sub-advisor of Vanguard Growth Equity.

Janet Paskin highlights John Hussman and his Hussman Strategic Growth fund, a $3.5 billion offering that puts "added emphasis on the protection of capital during unfavorable market conditions."

Diya Gullapalli delves again into the pain of money market fund managers "scrambling for creative ways to safely maintain attractive yields." K&L Gates partner Mark Perlow gains a little expert ink in the piece.

In a separate article, Tom Lauricella joins the "pile on target date funds" crowd, writing that "lately the market has made mincemeat out of many of these portfolios." Lauricella suggests that one-size-fits-all target date funds are not appropriate, and he gains some support by turning for expert comment to Seth Masters, chief investment officer of defined contribution business at AllianceBernstein (a firm which offers both packaged and custom target date funds).

Finally, John Spence pens the latest piece in favor of utilizing ETFs within 401(k)s.
