Bear Fund


Q: Does TSP have a “bear” fund, or are they planning to introduce that type of fund soon? If not, then how can I take advantages of a “bear” fund? Also, what is the allocation of instruments in the G fund?

A: There is no “bear” fund in the TSP — that is a fund that moves inversely to a particular market. Visit for a description of each of the available TSP funds and their contents.
