Mining the audited 5500 reports of the largest DC plans (accounting for about 80% of assets), BrightScope recently released its list of the top 20 international stock funds. International funds have become a favorite in DC plans looking for diversification, with funds tending to have less correlation with domestic equities.

The top four funds are (as in the recent past) American Funds, Fidelity, Dodge & Cox and Vanguard. Among the rest of the top 20, new funds dominate, however, including choices from Thornburg, BlackRock, Templeton, Principal and Morgan Stanley. Here’s the complete list:
