401(k) plans move away from employer stock as investment vehicle
A look at the trend in 401(k) investment options over the past two decades shows a steady move away from employer stock as an investment vehicle. Should plans choose to expand the use of automatic enrollment features as a means of further encouraging participation, the regulations requiring the use of qualified investments might result in further movement away from investment in employer stock.

Did You Know?
NAFI Retirement Plans are retirement plans sponsored by government entities known as Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities (NAFIs). NAFIs are part of the federal government but they do not receive funding from Congress. Instead, NAFIs fund themselves with revenue they earn through the services and products that they provide. Because NAFI employees are not eligible to participate in the retirement plans available to most civilian federal government employees, NAFIs sponsor their own plans. Learn more.
