After a rocky start to the year, fund performance for the Thrift Savings Plan rebounded last month. A strong February on Wall Street helped fuel across-the-board gains in all five of the TSP’s regular funds, according to statistics released Tuesday by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board .
The largest gains came in the stock funds. The C Fund, designed to track the performance of the S&P 500, finished the month with a gain of 4.58 percent. The S Fund, an index of smaller companies not included on the S&P 500, was up more than 5 percent. The I Fund, which tracks the performance of international companies, claimed the month’s largest gains — up 5.58 percent.
The F Fund, which tracks a broad index of corporate and government bonds, inched up 0.62 percent last month. That has the F Fund up more than 2 percent so far for 2014 — a far cry from last year when it struggled to stay in the black most of the year and finished 2013 down more than a point.
