Survey Results Shed Light on DC Plan Fees, Trends and TDFs

401k Plan FeesSurvey results from the 17th annual NEPC 2022 DC Plan Trends & Fees Survey, reflect what is occurring in the DC market.  Fred Barstein summarizes the results of that survey in his recent article.  He also digs a bit deeper into what the results may be indicating for both large and small plans.

Not-surprisingly the survey results indicate that TDFs continue their toehold on plan participants!  However, funds labeled as ESG-based investments have not yet gained wide acceptance throughout the industry.

Administrative and investment fee structure declines are slowing – a welcome respite from the downward spiraling fees structures of recent years.
