Very interesting article. When the author is referring to “modern” defined benefit plans, is he referring specifically to “target benefit” plans? This appears to be the only type of DB plan that can offer contribution stability to Plan Sponsors.

Higher value, lower risk, lower cost, lower complexity and “modern” to boot! Shazaam… the MDB plan is born.

Gosh…I’ll take a dozen.
