Plan participants often look to their employers to help them achieve retirement security. Yet sponsors and participants often have different perspectives about what’s most important in an employer-sponsored retirement plan. Understanding the views of both groups is critical.
Recent research that highlights areas of agreement and disagreement between plan sponsors and participants – including barriers to saving, risk evaluation, and plan participation – may help you meet the needs of both.
Join American Century Investments and Empower Retirement for a webcast that offers asset manager and recordkeeper perspectives on these perceptions. You’ll also hear how –
- Sponsors consider plan design features and monitor success
- Participants feel about their savings efforts as well as their expectation for the future
- To design retirement plans that serve both sponsors and participants more effectively
