Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans: Analyzing the Retirement Income Opportunity

March 7, 2023

In the three years following the SECURE Act (and SECURE 2.0), asset managers, recordkeepers, and technology providers have come to market with new and innovative retirement income solutions that help defined contribution (DC) plan participants invest and spend down their savings in retirement. What is the appetite for these solutions from plan sponsors and consultants? What type of retirement income solutions do consultants favor? What are the major distribution challenges and frictions these solution providers face? Explore these obstacles and opportunities with Cerulli’s Shawn O’Brien, CFA. This 45-minute presentation addresses recent retirement income product development activity, distribution and adoption trends, and recordkeeper distribution features and functionality.
