Defined contribution outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO) solutions
Maintain control of what is important to you; delegate the rest.
Like many fiduciaries, plan sponsors may find that keeping up with defined contribution regulatory requirements, plan design changes, and oversight of investment managers, recordkeepers, trustees, and custodians are draining limited resources. Outsourcing may be the answer.
Outsourcing for a DC plan can take many forms, from limited scope duties such as investment manager selection and monitoring to full plan management and administration. For more than 30 years, we have provided award-winning1 fiduciary management services to corporate retirement plans. Plan sponsors may benefit from engaging us as a co-fiduciary for:
- DC plan design
- Investment manager search and ongoing management
- Participant communications
- Recordkeeper searches and oversight

The default option is increasing in importance
Target date funds have become the most popular DC plan QDIA (qualified default investment alternative) option because they offer a simple, sound investment strategy that helps streamline retirement savings. Target date funds aren't for everyone, however. We offer other default investment strategy options designed to meet the unique needs of your plan and your participants. We believe a well-built investment menu designed for several types of investors can help drive better outcomes for participants.
