Matters Discussed: Bill Cottle reviewed the plan'S investment line-up and recommended that several funds, the Hartford Capital Appreciation, Fidelity VIP Mid-Cap and Fidelity VIP Contrafund, should be reviewed more closely. Bill also suggested that the committee might want to consider adding an opportunistic fund to the fixed income line-up. Lisa Gillarde reviewed the ING fund report card for the funds in our investment line-up.

Lisa concurred with Bill Cottle'S analysis on the funds to be watched. We also discussed the Morningstar Portfolios and plans to encourage more employees to take a look at them to increase diversification.

The next meeting is scheduled for November 20, 2013. It will be held at ING'S headquarters in Windsor.
