Shelton NASDAQ-100 Index Fund Eclipses $1 Billion in Assets Under Management
Denver—January 27, 2021—Fueled by growing interest among investors and retirement savers in 401(k) accounts, the Shelton NASDAQ-100 Index Fund (NASDX) crossed $1 billion in assets under management, Shelton Capital Management announced today.
NASDX, which received an Overall Morningstar Rating of 5 stars among 1,197 Large Growth funds, based on the risk-adjusted returns, as of 12/31/2020, is available on major brokerage platforms including Charles Schwab, LPL, TD Ameritrade, and Fidelity and through several 401(k) platforms and offerings.
The Fund, which seeks to replicate the performance of the largest non-financial companies as measured by the NASDAQ-100 Index®, is one of the few offerings available to investors in their 401(k) that closely mirrors the popular benchmark.
“With its allocation towards top performing industries such as Technology, Consumer Services, and Health Care, the Nasdaq-100 Index® is rapidly becoming the index of choice for many investors,” said Dennis Clark, Managing Director. “We are pleased to make the index available for investing through the NASDAQ-100 Index Fund and we are grateful for the Fund’s continued growth and performance.”
The Nasdaq-100 is home to some of the world’s most innovative companies including Apple, Google, Intel, and Tesla. These iconic brands appeal to the investing focus of investors who believe these companies represent the future economy.
“We continue to see investors in 401(k) plans and other retirement vehicles flock to this fund because it gives them an option to invest in industries that are in sync with their lifestyle priorities,” said Ann Margaret Williams, Director of Retirement Plan Services at Shelton Capital Management.
