Defined contribution (DC) plans have grown to become the most commonly used employer-sponsored retirement savings vehicle in the U.S. — and fiduciary duty guidance is rapidly evolving as well. Please join us for a discussion on defined contribution plan stewardship with Greg Leonberger, director of research, and Kweku Obed, senior investment consultant. Key topics from our popular DC white paper, Defined Contribution Plans: A Look at the Past, Present & Future, will be covered.

Attendees will be briefed on:

  • The growth of defined contribution plans
  • Best practices evolution & the PPA as catalyst
  • Behavioral finance & the fiduciary duty of investment choice simplification
  • The robust governance & monitoring imperative

A question and answer session will follow.
