ULLICO Inc., the parent of Trust Fund Advisors Inc., Washington, on June 1 switched its $550 million 401(k) plan to a new defined contribution plan design TFA has developed for the Taft-Hartley market, said Cathy Humphrey, assistant vice president of investment services marketing. ULLICO made the switch because the company wanted to switch from balance forward to daily valuation, she said. The new plan was designed as a supplemental multiemployer defined contribution plan. The new plan is being provided through a strategic alliance formed by TFA, Nicholas-Applegate and CNA Trust. Options in the new plan are Nicholas-Applegates international core growth equity, large-cap growth domestic equity, value equity, small-cap domestic equity and bond portfolios; and Federateds Capital Preservation Fund.
