Collective Trust Funds (CTFs) are rapidly becoming the investment vehicle of choice for many 401(k) plan sponsors. CFTs are only available to tax-exempt 401(k), pension, profit-sharing, and governmental retirement plans. Now that these funds offer daily valuation and investment direction combined with the potential for lower costs, many 401(k) plan sponsors have moved toward CFTs instead of registered mutual funds. A faculty of leading banking, SEC and ERISA attorneys will provide updates on all of the regulatory developments affecting these vehicles.
