Leveraging fund managers between a DB and a DC plan
Pantheon targets DC plans for private equity strategies; John Hancock overhauls TDF suite; Vanguard lowers expense ratios on 21 fund shares; and more.
The DCIIA suggests that, while investors utilize ESG and SRI to receive the emotional benefits, they do not necessarily sacrifice returns
TIAA adds guaranteed income components to TDFs; Virtus launches
Municipal Bond ETF; Alger revamps ESG fund; and more.
While there was some reaction to major events in 2016, 401(k) participants mostly stayed the course in their investments.
Including private equity into the asset class mix of a
DC plan participant’s TDF could generate additional savings of $484,168,
according to a new study.
In response to a question about TIAA’s Income for Life Custom Portfolios, the Department of Labor noted that in the preamble to its QDIA regulations it said other investments could be prudent defaults for DC plans.
This is a shift from an emphasis on fiduciary risk in fund selection, a study finds.
Prudential launches new TDF suite; Natixis releases ESG TDFs; and Vanguard reports reduced expense ratios.
Glide paths, investment management style and fees are all crucial to TDF selection in a changing market.
