The Changing Equation: Building for Retirement in a Low Return World

Retirement outcomes are the result of contributions, investment returns, costs and time. If one of these factors changes, what could that mean for plan participants? Unfortunately for today’s savers, analysts believe we may be in an era of reduced market returns – and could be for some time. Low returns could put a real dent in retirement savings. DC plan participants need action and guidance from their plan sponsors to prepare for potentially low returns – including a review of plan design features, investment strategies and retirement polices and goals. Explore BlackRock’s thought leadership, The Changing Equation: Building for Retirement in a Low Return World to learn more.
