Methodology

back to top

The PLANSPONSOR Defined Benefit (DB) Administration Survey summarizes the experience/capabilities of DB administration providers and excludes providers focused exclusively on investment-only, consultant/advisory or actuarial services. All data presented are as of December 31, 2016, and include only “full outsourcing” and “co-sourcing” arrangements. Bundled “DB/DC” clients are based on total DB clients.

Some new client restrictions may apply; please contact the provider for details. Items marked as “NR” were “not reported” in time for publication. Email Brian O’Keefe at brian.okeefe@strategic-i.com for more information.
