Does the fund prospectus say it pays dividends or interest? Bonds pay interest (not dividends).

It is a trust. They don’t have to pay dividends. Mutual funds are required to pay dividends, collective trusts don’t have to. They have less admin which is why more 401k are using them instead of mutual funds

They’re just a few cents a share and would likely be reinvested automatically since you can’t access those returns without tax implications. I’d rec going in and looking on your work portal. I usually see “dividends and cap gains” transactions in the detail on mine.

If it is a collective trust and not a mutual fund, they don’t usually pay dividends. Most of the investment in our 401k are now trusts. They used to be mutual funds

Amex corporate green card or CSR? I’m not seeing many benefits to the Amex and I’m wondering whether I should just stop paying the annual fee and apply for CSR instead and get reimbursed for business expenses from that card. Considering I can only put business reimbursable expenses on the Amex, it’s not accumulating points very fast. Would I be better off consolidating my points on CSR? Amex platinum doesn’t seem like the right move for me right now.

It is just me or do other people feel like they do better in interviews when they don’t give a crap about it?
