Behavioral Finance in Retirement Plans

January 13, 2014

The National Association of Plan Advisors recently published a piece entitled “If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try Science” by Robert L. Frick and Cathy Smith. The piece focuses on how behavioral finance can help improve retirement plans and shares surprising findings regarding opt-in/opt-out practices, default savings rate and more.
