Simplifying Investment Options to Better Serve Participants (PDF)

8 pages. Excerpt: One recent study shows that the more fund options employees are faced with, the less likely they are to participate in their plan: 'employees eligible for Defined Contribution plans are more likely to opt out when offered increasing numbers of fund options. Indeed, for every 10-option increase, predicted individual participation probabilities declined by 2%. In particular, as the number of funds increased from 2 to 11, there followed a steady decline in participation from 75% to 70%.' (Iyengar & Jiang, 2005) Faced with the multiple investment decisions required to save for retirement, many employees will procrastinate indefinitely or simply toss their enrollment form into the recycling bin out of pure frustration.
