401k Investors: Connecting Math, Emotion and Choices


Avoiding emotional decisions, especially when investing through 401k plans, is the key to successfully saving for retirement. Understanding the power of saving early and compound returns is much more likely to matter than any potential return. Cost is another element that can be impacted. In the current legal environment, monitoring the effectiveness of the retirement plan, especially its cost is essential.

The Learning Objectives for this presentation are:
1) Demonstrate the math showing that how much saved and how long one saves far outweighs annual returns: the power of compounding.
2) Explain a useful tool, based upon behavioral science, that helps people plan and commit, which may act as a foundation for good investment choices, against volatile securities markets.
3) Decode revenue sharing (or “rebate”) practices, sharing with managers and savers how to break retirement plan cost into three components: a) investment expense b) administrative cost and c) the cost of advice.
4) Summarize the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rules, which are set to take effect in April 2017, especially when coupled with the US Supreme Court’s decision in May 2015: Tibble v. Edison International.
