BMO Global Asset Management’s DC Conversations: An industry assessment helps retirement plan advisors lead better conversations with plan sponsors about industry trends and behaviors impacting defined contribution retirement plans. With a comprehensive array of reusable charts and graphs, this guide is designed to assist plan sponsors in evaluating their retirement plan programs against a variety of industry benchmarks.

In today’s rapidly-changing environment, plan sponsors and their advisors can play an active role in producing better retirement outcomes for plan participants by optimizing plan designs. The surveys summarized in this assessment provide current and historical trends in employee benefits. Highlights of the data compiled include:

  • An auto enrollment feature is utilized in 58% of all plans – up from 42% in 2010.
  • Participation rates have increased by 2.2 percentage points from last year.
  • Target date funds are now the default investment vehicle in 79% of plans – up from 53% in 2010.
  • International equity is an option in 73% of plans, however, participants typically only have 3 international fund options – compared with 10 or more choices for domestic equity.
