is there a fidelity or vanguard fund that allows them to invest in an energy fund with just 10k balance(s) ? every one that I looked at appeared to require at least 25k to invest.
also, related to this question is an employer retirement plan 401k. what is the method to ask the plan administrator to make available an energy investment plan within the 401k? in calling the company HR dept, they have a plan counsel and toll-free service for the banking institution that administers the plan but these people are not the money plan makers and noone seems to know who that is. in other words, I can call up the banking institution and ask anything about my investment selections or get statements and make changes (which I can do online also) but these people have nothing to do with the actual investment plans (ie. large cap fund, bond fund, etc.) and they don't know who runs the plan choices yet the prospectus outlines clearly which companies are used to run the components inside the 401k - these companies have no contacts within our HR dept either.
reason, obviously, why I'm asking is that all types of energy is becoming more and more expensive, with natural gas, oil, fuels, all becoming more expensive and it would appear to be a sound position long-term to drop all savings into an energy fund or at least a sizable chunk if possible
