Russell Retirement Report 2008: Fundamental changes underway point to a new generation DC plan that Russell labels 401(k) version 2.0
Russell Retirement Report 2008 published
Russell Investment Group
17 Sep 2007 United States Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Countries - US
In its newly released "Russell Retirement Report 2008", Russell Investment Group argues that the 401(k) plan is being redesigned in corporations across America and that the changes currently underway are so fundamental that they amount to a new generation of defined contribution plan Russell calls 401(k) version 2.0. Russell contends that income replacement has replaced wealth management as the key objective for defined contribution plans. Additionally, 401(k) plans must respond and change in concert with their developing role as the central provider of retirement income in the United States.

New approach to retirement income planning and portfolio construction
New approach to retirement income planning and portfolio construction
Russell Investment Group
4 Sep 2007 United States Investment - General, Countries - US
A paper from Russell Investment Group, "Modern Portfolio Decumulation: A New Strategy for Managing Retirement Income", has been published which outlines in detail a new investment strategy aimed at improving an individual's ability to obtain a stable and steady stream of income for life from a retirement portfolio, with a secondary goal to preserve wealth for one's beneficiaries. The report argues that asset accumulation and asset decumulation are two different problems that require different investment solutions. The paper describes a new multiple period cash-flow-based investment framework that incorporates a dynamic asset allocation strategy and uses the projected cost to annuitise the investor's desired lifetime income stream as a hurdle for managing longevity risk within the portfolio.
