“Investors can still expect to face a historically low-return environment over the next decade, leaving Americans with an undiminished challenge as they look to ensure a financially secure retirement,” said Anne Lester, Portfolio Manager and Global Head of Retirement Solutions, J.P. Morgan Asset Management. “But, as we continue to emphasize, there are three steps plan sponsors can take to help improve participants' retirement outcomes across all market environments including: 1) encouraging participants to save more and save early through the use of automatic plan design features; 2) considering professionally managed portfolio strategies like target date funds that can make portfolio diversification easier; and 3) providing participants with the opportunity to enhance returns through the use of active management.”
“Ultimately, plan participants are responsible for saving enough to support their retirement goals—but too often, a lack of time and investment knowledge, along with inertia, holds them back,” continued Dan Oldroyd, Portfolio Manager and Head of Target Date Strategies, J.P. Morgan Asset Management. “In our podcast we explore ways plan sponsors can fortify their plans by adopting automatic features, “uncomplicating” the allocation process with well-diversified TDFs, and providing active management opportunities to help enhance return potential. Setting participants on this type of solid saving and investing path is one of the ways to help them achieve a financially secure retirement.”
