Despite the hoopla over fee disclosure, plan sponsors' loyalty to their retirement service providers actually went up from last year, according to Chatham Partners' annual Provider Loyalty Index.

The Index measures loyalty among plan sponsors with decision-making authority for their organization's retirement plans and is calculated based on insights from over 7,000 plan sponsors. The data covers clients from 16 of the top 20 retirement plan providers.
