Benefit Trends?

When the market was roaring and the internet soaring, the trend was market indexed defined contributions and stock options. Is anyone seeing a renewed interest in interest credited defined contributions and perhaps even defined benefits?

Confession, I am collecting information for the COLI Administration confernece in Chicago next month.

Odd as it may seem, I haven't seen any increased interest in fixed crediting rates or fixed rate products. I have, however, had clients inquire about stable value and hedge funds, but only if they could offer, on the upside, the potential for near equity like returns.

By the way, what COLI conference is that? A website where I can get any information?

Others have told me the same thing at this point. I imagine our first clues of any shift will be 401k activity. I wonder if any reaction will be delayed until people begin getting annual statements.

The "Nonqualfied Benefit Plan Administration Solutions" conference is produced by IIR in Chicago from Oct 15 to 16. Their website is www.iirusa.com.

Why do you think that there was any trend towards market indexed defined contributions?

What are market indexed defined contributions, anyway?

What are interest credited defined contributions?
