Collective Trust Funds (CTFs) are rapidly becoming the investment vehicle of choice for many 401(k) plan sponsors. CTFs are only available to tax-exempt 401(k), pension, profit-sharing, and governmental retirement plans. Now that these funds offer daily valuation and investment direction combined with the potential for lower costs, many 401(k) plan sponsors have moved toward CTFs instead of registered mutual funds. They now dominate the 401(k) arena.
Although CTFs have been around since the early 20th century, recent regulatory and market developments have created new business opportunities and, at the same time, legal challenges.
Our faculty of leading banking, SEC, and ERISA lawyers are joined by other leading professionals in the area to provide you with updates on all of the regulatory developments affecting these important vehicles. They also review marketplace developments and new product design features.
