New Fund is Designed for Cash Balance Plans

September 24, 2008 ( - Kravitz, provider of design and administration of cash balance pension plans, along with Payden & Rygel, an independent investment manager, announced the launch of a new fund designed to offer cash balance plan sponsors and advisers access to a strategic investment solution.

According to the announcement, the Payden/Kravitz Cash Balance Plan Fund minimizes administrative burdens and simplifies performance monitoring. The fund seeks to earn a net rate of return, after fees and expenses, equivalent to the yield on 30-year Treasury Securities Interest Rate, as defined annually by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – a rate used by many cash balance plans for crediting interest to participant accounts.

The fund will be distributed through intermediaries including 401(k) providers, financial advisers and TPAs, by Payden & Rygel Distributors.
