Get the Latest Issue: Second Quarter 2019

The Second Quarter 2019 Currents covers:

  • Plans Relying on Market Returns — As plans mature, they rely more on market returns as contributions become an ever smaller share of total assets. This is just one of many conclusions we reached after reviewing the latest available Form 5500 filings of all 1,200+ multiemployer pension plans.
  • Investment Trends — We consider how confirmation bias affects investment and look at emerging trends in oil prices.
  • Compliance News — Starting on April 1, 2019, the Internal Revenue Service will only accept electronic submissions for the Voluntary Compliance Program. Plus, the Department of Treasury has proposed regulations that address the legislative changes made to the rules governing hardship distributions from 401(k) and 403(b) plans.
