Investment Policy & Design Committee
Committee Leadership Team:
The DCIIA Investment Policy & Design (IP&D) Committee provides a forum to encourage and promote research, dialogue, education, thought leadership and best practices related to the design and implementation of effective DC plan investment options with a special focus on qualified default investment alternatives (QDIAs). The committee was established in accordance with DCIIA’s founding charter and core beliefs. It brings together a diverse group of industry professionals, including: investment managers, insurance companies, consultants, record keeping and trust companies, plan sponsors, law firms, academia and others focused on improving outcomes for American workers by advocating the application of sound policies and solutions.
The IP&D Committee serves a central role in DCIIA’s broader mission of bringing best practices in institutional investment management to defined contribution retirement plans. The committee has a dual objective of developing practical “how-to” materials for plan sponsors, which at the same time can educate public policy makers on investment-related matters.
