More and more mutual fund firms are taking (or thinking about taking) the plunge into the retirement plan industry as "DC I-O" (defined contribution investment-only) players, but 401(k) plans and the rest of the DC industry live in a very different world from the retail fund business. This column will be the first of many designed to help fundsters like you keep up to date on the latest 401(k) industry news and why it matters to you. The MFWire
will regularly team up with our subscription-based sister publication, The 401kWire
to bring you this special update from the world of defined contribution retirement plans (i.e. 401(k). 403(b), 457 plans and more; as opposed to defined benefit plans, i.e. traditional pensions).
There are three stories in this column:
"What are Your Competitors Doing in DC?"
"New Faces and Opportunities Crop Up at DC Distributors?"
"The Coming Regulatory Storm?"
