2012 Transition Management Survey
Jul 18, 2012
Transition management is an industry that, while often thought of as staid, over the past year has been anything but.
Return to Clarity
Well-known firms have recently experienced problems with
their transition management services —some aberrations and some systemic and
extremely serious. This survey indicates that all had an impact on how plan
sponsors, even those that do not use transition managers, view the industry.
Of the 119 U.S. plan sponsors that responded to the survey,
none reported having complete trust in the industry as a whole, but roughly
half admitted more transitions than the year before.
Though numerous changes to the survey structure complicate
comparisons to the results of previous years, the table above breaks down transitions
conducted in 2011, offering a snapshot of the transition management industry as
it stands today.
