Research firm BrightScope announced the Top 20 Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) funds by total distribution.

As the inflation-resistant potential of TIPS funds causes an investment surge in retirement plans, they now represent roughly $15 billion of the $3.2 trillion in 401k, 403b, and 457 assets tracked, according to San Diego-based BrightScope.

"In fact, the amount of investable assets dedicated to TIPS funds has been growing at a steady 30 percent  rate as plan sponsors, consultants and advisors see more value in diversification," said Ryan Alfred, president and co-founder of BrightScope, in a statement. "This makes having access to detailed information and analytics about TIPS funds invaluable for asset managers looking for a competitive advantage."
