*Source: Plansponsor, July 2018. The 2018 Plansponsor Recordkeeping Survey integrates data from Plansponsor 403(b), 457 and non-qualified deferred compensation (NQDC) buyer's guides to provide a more complete summary of the defined contribution (DC) market. The results were aggregated from data submitted by 63 service providers that collectively oversee more than $7 trillion in DC assets and are estimated to account for more than 90% of the total defined contribution market. Each provider is ranked in three categories: total plans, total assets and total participants; other rankings/totals reflect only those organizations that reported the associated data. All data, including data reported this year, are as of December 31, 2017; all information from the survey was self-reported.
