DC Decisions - What Matters Most for Your Plan Members Webinar

Some plan sponsor decisions are more consequential for members than others. Join Greystone for a thought provoking discussion on the impact and importance of key decisions that plan sponsors make in designing and implementing their DC programs.

In this presentation, we evaluate and rank the key decisions that plan sponsors make by quantifying how they impact plan members’ retirement success. Examples of decisions we will evaluate include:

  • Plan Design
    Should we increase the contribution rate? Should we implement auto-enrollment or auto-escalation?
  • Investment Structure
    Should we offer Target Date Funds as opposed to a single Balanced Fund or other stand-alone investment options?
  • Investment Selection
    What is the impact of active versus passive? What are the benefits to using plan or member-specific glide paths? Should we give our plan members access to the alternative asset classes that DB plans commonly use?

The results may surprise you!
