Global Committee Spotlight

DC plans rapidly are becoming the primary employer-sponsored retirement savings vehicle around the globe. Multi-national plan sponsors, consultants, investment managers and other providers are working together to understand, design and deliver efficient plans for global workforces. On June 25th, DCIIA held its first Global DC Webcast to inform our membership about DC systems outside of the US and the opportunities available to plan sponsors and service providers alike when thinking globally about DC plans. This webcast covers UK, Australia and Canada.   

Our webcast was moderated by Kevin Vandolder, who introduced the Committee’s mandate and the challenges and opportunities in the market today. Stacy Schaus and Serge Boccassini then discussed the Committee’s Global DC Guiding Principles for plan sponsors while highlighting efforts thus far in developing plan sponsor case studies. The webcast then moved into a discussion with DC global experts - Janice Sengupta in Sydney, Joan Johannson in Toronto, and Will Allport in London, -- discussing their home countries’ DC environment.

Paula Sanford, Ph.D., of the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia is a local government finance specialist whose latest research explores how some states – Ohio, Virginia, Missouri - have successfully implemented automatic features within their supplemental defined contribution plans despite numerous challenges. Read Paula’s blog post and research.

Why Focus On Automatic Features – one of DCIIA’s core beliefs is that well-designed default programs can improve retirement outcomes: Automatic enrollment and automatic contribution escalation of participant contribution levels, when combined with default investment options that take advantage of institutional asset management techniques, help increase savings levels and promote better retirement outcomes.
