Jun 30, 2015Average asset-weighted total plan costs for 403(b) plans dropped to 51 basis points in 2012, down from 59 basis points in 2009, said a report released Tuesday by the Investment Company Institute and BrightScope.
Jun 30, 2015“There’s no standardization,” said Brooks Herman, head of data and research at BrightScope, a company that rates and compares 401(k) plans. “There are over 600,000 401(k) plans and they’re all issuing fee disclosures in different formats.” And shorter doesn’t necessarily mean better. “I’ve seen fee disclosures up to 65 pages,” Herman said, but even some of the 5-page disclosures are not “easily consumed.”
