Since the Pension Protection Act of 2006, target-date funds have seen tremendous growth within the defined contribution market. However, after the financial crisis, plan sponsors, participants, and even regulators began to look at target-date funds with greater skepticism.Join Celent Analyst Alexander Camargo as he examines the use of these new custom designs in the context of the retirement landscape in the United States. This webinar will explain target-date funds and highlight the effects of the financial crisis on the target-date fund market. Learn about what a custom target-date fund is, what institutions are needed to create a custom design, and other operational considerations plan sponsors must make before adopting a custom design. This webinar will also summarize the major benefits of custom funds as compared to an off-the shelf target-date fund and will provide a sizing of the custom target-date market as it currently stands as well as a projection of the custom target-date fund market by 2015.

This presentation draws on findings from the report Custom Target-Date Funds: Plan Sponsors Enjoy Innovations in the Fund Market.

This event is FREE to attend. Celent clients and the media will have access to the webinar’s PowerPoint presentation after the event.
