Defined contribution plans are the savings vehicle of choice, yet the plan structures differ across markets. In this session, our speaker will “Consider the importance and global growth of Defined Contribution”, “Share research and insights on plan design, governance and investment structures” and “Discuss recent regulatory changes and the broadening role of DC plans”.
