Focus on your core business.
Leave your DC plan management to us.


Against today’s uncertain economic backdrop, defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors are concerned about regulatory complexity, having the resources to manage the plan, as well as fiduciary risk and excessive fees.


In Mercer Wise 401(k)’s fully outsourced solution, Mercer acts as a named fiduciary responsible for the operation and investments for the plan, thereby reducing administrative burdens, reducing fiduciary risk and contributing to improved participant outcomes.*
