Instead of slagging all advisors with the same brush, perhaps your readers may have been better served with some details on how to achieve the risk mitigation strategies that only a ‘select group of actuaries’ are aware of. Or might it be safe to say that the interests of your billable hours are not well aligned with sharing the information in a magazine article?

Large consulting firms have told plan sponsors for years that once an employee leaves there is no benefit to continuing to administer and invest their funds in a DC plan – liability for poor governance and inadequate income will persist.

So now the big firms are waking up to the reality that the broker network has known for years – focusing on doing the minimum is not in the best interest of employees. Maybe if all these ‘best employer’ surveys included retirees there would be better incentives to do things better

Hi Fred,

I’ve read both your books on the subject of retirement saving and learned so much from them both. Please consider writing a third on implementing an efficient decumulation strategy.
