Defined Contribution Institute - New York City 2022

Oct 18th - Oct 19th 2022
New York, NY
Learn from the Best - Constructing Your DC Plan on Best Practices, Industry Expertise, and Peer Experience

Unlike pieces of literature or college theses, copying your peers is a much-encouraged endeavor in the world of defined contribution. The sharing of information and best practices has been critical to the proliferation of successful plan designs and models, and the successes of certain plan sponsors and managers in particular aspects of plan management have inspired others in replicating and further improving on these existing achievements.

In an industry abundant with expertise and knowledge, the 2022 DC Institute – New York City event will collect and disseminate all the best practices, know-how, and wisdom that have have been accumulating in the past few years – learn from experts and peers on their experiences and their thought-processes behind decisions over everything from plan design, investment line-up overhaul, vendor relationship management, participant engagement, creating new programs, and much more.
