Trends in DC: Becoming more outcome-oriented

Webinar

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

The direction of travel is now very clear. Defined contribution plans, fast becoming the only retirement option for U.S. workers, are focusing not just on the journey but the destination. That means if DC plans are to replace DB plans, then they really need to replace income. Whether it’s 50% or 75% or even 100%, the replacement income ratio is both an individual participant target and a defined contribution plan sponsor measure of success. Join P&I and our panel of experts as we discuss trends in the DC space.

    Custom Target-Date Strategies

    Webinar

    Wednesday, November 5, 2014

    Custom target-date funds are fastly becoming more prevalent than traditional TDFs as they address the varied and individualized needs of plans that aren't attuned to the "one-size-fits-all" mold. For many participants, plan flexibility outweighs the simplicity found in off-the-shelf target-date products. But fully understanding the packaged approach vs. the various custom options is important to consider when constructing, implementing and managing a custom target-date solution. Tune into this webinar to have access to innovative custom target-date strategies. Attendees will discover how fellow peers have reaped the benefits of implementing a custom target-date solution through lowered costs, greater overall transparency and gained access to the "best-in-class" management for various components of their target-date investment options.

    Hospital and Healthcare Investing

    Webinar

    Thursday, November 6, 2014

    The financial crisis brought both healthcare operations and financial management under scrutiny in what was already an enormously complicated institution. Squeezed liquidity, credit concerns limiting borrowing levels and weak returns from investment portfolios are making it difficult to close the gaps for some healthcare organizations. Even those that have remained financially stable share a complex financial management challenge balancing the investment management decisions made regarding a group of various assets including pension plans, operating pools, endowments and insurance assets.

    During this webinar, P&I will bring together top decision-makers — tasked with addressing concerns over financial constraints and pensions at healthcare companies — to discuss solutions to daily challenges.
