6/10/2012: 401(k) Fees: Why Transparency is Important (Plan Sponsor Council of America [PSCA])
"[The public is] now getting stories and even ridiculous recommendations such as the one from the Motley Fool folks suggesting that participants should drop out of their 401(k) and save in an IRA. They also suggested that if there is a brokerage option in the plan, participants should use that option rather than the plan-provided investment menu. Because most 401(k) participants work at larger companies with the plan asset level enabling them to enjoy institutional pricing, this will force participants making these choices to pay higher, not lower, fees."
