  • The 403(b) market – room for future upgrades?
    In my last post I talked about my neighbors’ discomfort with change, even though it positions us for the future. Some have complained a new TV service is inferior. While I agree there may be fewer bells and whistles, the new provider uses a fiber optic-based system with plenty of room for future upgrades. It’s[…]

  • Are 403(b) plans evolving fast enough?
    My community recently experienced a technology upgrade. We now have fiber optics for TV and ultra-high speed internet. While I don’t really have use for 1GBps internet speed today, I know this latest evolution enables future technology. Change is often a good thing. But not everyone sees it that way. Many neighbors have raised complaints[…]

  • Tips from a mileage junkie: Check your retirement readiness scoreboard
    Working on my third coffee, I was anxious to board my flight. I kept an eye on the clock while watching the list of standby passengers mushroom. Growing impatient, I fixated on updates to the flight status. I just wanted to get buckled in and on my way. Of course, I couldn’t complain too loudly.[…]

  • Is fee levelization right for my organization?
    I’m starting to hear this question a lot. Which is great news because it means you’ve not only heard about the possible benefits of fee levelization, but you want to learn more.

  • Short and Sharp: a softer Brexit but still a weaker pound
    There are many anxieties for investors in global markets. The one keeping me up at night is Brexit. Having defied all the negative economic forecasts following last year’s Brexit referendum, the UK economy is now losing momentum. GDP growth in first quarter was just 0.2%, and 0.3% in second quarter. Business investment was stagnant and[…]

  • End of the Pension Funding Holiday Road
    Everyone loves vacation.  Some subset of everyone also loves the 1983 film National Lampoon’s Vacation starring Chevy Chase.  In case you haven’t seen NLV (if such a thing is even possible) the plot features Chase’s character, Clark Griswold, loading up the family truckster, hitting the open road, and (theoretically) leaving his daily worries behind. Many[…]

  • Short and Sharp: Resist the temptation to trade geopolitical risk
    Last week’s escalating tensions surrounding North Korea immediately affected markets. Global equities fell almost 2%, bond yields fell, credit spreads widened meaningfully, and the U.S. dollar and gold strengthened as investors went into flight-to-quality mode. The VIX, a measure of the expected turbulence of U.S. stocks implied in the price of options, reacted as well.[…]

  • What is revenue sharing and how does it work?

So, let’s do a quick refresher on the basics of why and how fees are collected. Why retirement plan administrative fees are collected Retirement[…]

  • Embracing change and evolving business
    The Pony Express is as ubiquitous in Hollywood westerns as horses and saloons.  You would think that it was a long-term fixture in the history of the western United States.  Yet, the Pony Express lasted a mere 19 months, replaced by the telegraph. The Pony Express wasn’t the first and certainly not the last business[…]

  • Short and Sharp: The U.S. dollar watches the West Wing
    Bond and equity markets have (so far) brushed off the political dramas unfolding in Washington. For the U.S. dollar, on the other hand, it’s a different story. Since the beginning of this year, the trade-weighted dollar has dropped around 10%. For an administration that said that “Our companies can’t compete with them [Chinese companies] now[…]
