Primary Conference Themes
While outcomes and asset allocation solutions will remain central to success, the future belongs to those who adapt, become efficient, manage liability, provide solutions, communicate value and grow.
The primary educational themes for CFDD ’14 include: Liquid Alts For DC Plans, Asset Allocation & Portfolio Construction, Motivating Plan Sponsors To Implement Your Recommendations, Building Enterprise Value, Wealth Management Within Retirement Plan Practices, Scalable Efficiency & Compliance Management and the Evolving Regulatory Landscape.
Building enterprise value is very different from succession planning. Given the importance of both, FP Transitions will spearhead the track on building enterprise value. The nation’s top ERISA attorneys will also cover the evolving regulatory landscape.
Outcomes, margin pressure, fee compression and revenue hungry policy makers have sparked renewed interest in wealth management and participant advice by retirement plan practices. To meet this need, CFDD ’14 will include a thoughtfully populated track on wealth management within retirement plan practices.
In addition to our pre-conference program on scalable efficiency and compliance management, CFDD ’14 is the only major retirement plans advisory conference to offer a track of sessions on liquid alts for DC plans.
