Requesting company add SDBA for 401K. What should I do in the meantime?

Assalamu alaikum, jazakumullahu khairan for the educational services and tools you are providing. They are much needed, and I’m grateful I stumbled upon them.

I recently started looking into my 401k investments after 5 years of investing in non-shariah compliant options. My current investments are in the Vanguard trust composed of 10% bonds and the following funds:

  1. Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Institutional Plus Shares
  2. Vanguard Institutional Total International Stock Market Index Trust II

None of the options I have available are moderately shariah compliant to my knowledge (most are less than 50% compliant or have bonds).

I have contacted HR to petition to add a self-directed brokerage account option to our company vanguard plan, and I have halted additional contributions to my 401k temporarily. What do you suggest I do with my current investments?

Thank you in advance, any advice or resources are greatly appreciated!
