Growth of the defined contribution investment-only (DCIO) market continues to outpace that of the DC plan market overall. Today, DCIO assets total $2.7 trillion, up from $2.2 trillion a year ago. Hearts & Wallets projects this will grow to $3.6 trillion in 2018, which means DCIO assets will make up 49 percent of the total DC market at that time, up from 46 percent today.

This is just one finding from Hearts & Wallets’ latest in-depth study of the DCIO market, The State of DCIO Distribution: 2014—Assessing and Refining Strategy in Light of a Rapidly Evolving Market.”
