Thomson Corp., Stamford, Conn., removed Putnam's International Equity Fund from the list of options to its 401(k) plan, said Thomson spokesman Jason Stewart.
The Putnam fund was replaced with Barclays Global Investors' Russell 1000 Large Cap Growth Fund, he said. However, Thomson left several Putnam domestic funds on its options list. Putnam also remains record keeper for Thomson's 401(k) plan. A Putnam spokesman was not immediately available to comment. Thomson had $1.3 billion in its 401(k) as of June 2002, according to the Money Market Directory.
