    Default Board defers action on I Fund transition

    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.

    I thought it was a bi-partisan effort from Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)?

    You want China in our I-fund?

    Their ears are open. Maybe you should give them a call about increasing the IFT's. I know you have some pull in D.C.
