Returns for the Thrift Savings Plan continued their steady upward climb last month, with all funds posting in positive territory for the month of August, according to new data from the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board.
After a few months of declining numbers this spring, TSP returns have mostly bounced back. August marked the fourth month so far where all the funds posted in the black.
The G and the F Funds both posted slight gains. The C, S and I Funds all performed more strongly with the S Fund, pegged to the stocks of small and medium-sized U.S. companies, digging itself out of the red.
Year-to-date, all the funds are also in positive territory, with the biggest gains coming in the S Fund and the C Fund, which matches the performance of the S&P 500.
