Prudential Investments Mutual Funds, part of Prudential Financial, spends a lot of time providing thought leadership with input from Prudential Financial's affiliated institutional managers. A topic it has recently given much attention to is fixed-income choices in defined-contribution plans. In 2012, Prudential Investments Mutual Funds published the white paper, Insights on Investing: Fixed Income Options within DC Plans, for the purpose of initiating dialogue with advisers and consultants.
In this three-part blog series sponsored by Prudential, we will examine how fixed income can enhance retirement menus. In Part 2, we will explore ways to construct better portfolios through the use of these plans.
