Are Collective Investment Trusts a Good Choice for Your Employees’ Investment Menu?
Since its inception, the 401(k) plan has risen to become the most popular employer-sponsored retirement plan in the US. Millions of working Americans put a portion of their paycheck into a 401(k) to save for life after work. While there are many vehicles to help investors save for tomorrow, one that is growing in popularity is the use of collective investment trusts (CITs). These saving vehicles provide individual 401(k) investors the purchasing power of large institutions with improved better pricing. CITs are essentially the Costco or Sam’s Club of the investment world. Finding the vehicle that best aligns with your employee benefits should be top a priority for an organization and their committee members.
