With gains on Wall Street hitting some headwinds in March, the performance of funds in the Thrift Savings Plan last month lagged behind February’s advances.
Three of the TSP’s five regular funds ended the month in negative territory. The S Fund, the index of small companies not included in the S&P 500, fell 0.69 percent last month. The I Fund, tracked to the performance of international stocks was down 0.57 percent and the F Fund, tracked to the bond market, was down 0.15 percent.
The C Fund, designed to track the performance of the S&P 500, remained in the black, gaining 0.85 percent.
In February, all TSP funds finished the month with across-the-board gains thanks to a strong month on Wall Street after a weak January.
