The new era, the “target date fund” is basically depicted in the following paragraph.

If the thoughts of rebalancing is too stressful or you simply dont want to take on the responsibility, consider investing in a target date fund.  The asset allocation in the target date fund grows more conservative as you approach retirement, and rebalancing is done for you.*

We believe that these holdings do certainly need to be a part of an overall 401k strategy but we also understand that some consumers want choice as well.  We offer both and in unique ways.

We also offer several firms products that offer a “guaranteed” bucket in their allocation choices or options as well.

Executive benefit arrangements

Executive compensation has evolved dramatically in recent years, in creativity, complexity, and dollar value. Stock options, deferred compensation, fringe benefits, and other “non-cash” alternative forms of compensation are becoming increasingly popular and making up larger and larger parts of executives’ overall compensation packages.

There are multi-faceted tax implications for all forms of executive compensation: income and employment tax issues for the employers who pay the compensation and the executive employees who receive it. In addition to the increasing use of non-cash compensation, the use of partnerships and trusts (both domestic and offshore) in the handling of compensation is increasing. These factors add considerable complexity in determining current and future year tax liabilities for executives and their employers.*
