Kweku Obed has joined the investment committee for the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA). Established in 1947, the PSCA is a national, non-profit trade association of 1,200 companies and over six million plan participants. For more than 60 years, PSCA has dedicated itself to serving the evolving needs of defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors who seek an unbiased source of industry information, education programs and regulatory updates. Since its founding in 1947, PSCA has been on the forefront of protecting America’s retirement system.
The investment committee provides PSCA’s members with thought leadership on topics, trends, best practices, new thinking, tools and activities pertaining to defined contribution retirement plan investments and investing. The investment committee is comprised of plan sponsors and providers with a shared interest in the latest trends, developments and usage of investments used in employer-sponsored retirement plans. The group discusses both theoretical and pragmatic issues relating to asset allocation, portfolio composition, and topical issues such as the adoption of target date funds and retirement income products. The objective of the the group is educational. It seeks to expand the perspective through an active dialogue of what investment committees, plan sponsors and plan participants need to understand which investment vehicles will enable participants to achieve their retirement goals.
Kweku is also the co-chair of Marquette’s defined contribution services group and sits on the firm’s investment committee. He recently authored a white paper on the evolving fiduciary duties of defined contribution plans, Defined Contribution Plans: A Look at the Past, Present & Future.
