Calling DC Plan Sponsors to Participate in Our Research
Through a partnership with Mercer, PLANSPONSOR has launched a short Pulse Survey on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments in U.S.-based defined contribution (DC) plans. The questionnaire seeks to collect direct feedback from DC plan sponsors on how this emerging topic is influencing current thinking/actions. Whether or not ESG applies to your plan, we would appreciate DC plan sponsors investing 3-4 minutes to answer 11 quick-response questions on the topic. Respondents will be offered the opportunity to receive a complimentary advance copy of the final analysis/report, which will cover the past, present, and current state of ESG investing in institutional retirement plans. Responses will remain both anonymous and confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. The deadline for response is Friday, June 12.
