Issue no. 7

Unravelling the tangled web: complexity and customization in retirement planning

In this issue of next, we revisit our real estate allocation recommendations while examining how the sector fared during 2020 market volatility. We also analyze how plan sponsors can apply financial psychology and brand bias awareness training to their selection process. Next, we dive into the key provisions of the Securing Strong Retirement Act of 2021 (nicknamed the SECURE Act 2.0) that is currently working its way through Congress. Finally, we evaluate the rapidly growing managed accounts within plans to see what benefits the customization could bring to participants.

A word on risk 

All investments carry a certain degree of risk and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Equity investing involves risk. Investments are also subject to political, currency and regulatory risks. These risks may be magnified in emerging markets. Diversification is a technique to help reduce risk. There is no guarantee that diversification will protect against a loss of income.
