2021 RECORDKEEPING SURVEY | RESEARCH
Prioritize Key Issues and Score Responses
Malcolm and her UBS colleagues use a standard scoring system
that initially synthesizes the RFP responses into a " scorecard "
summary of about 40 key data points. " Then we go back to our
initial dialogue about that plan's current main pain points. We
tell the committee, 'Now, let's weight your pain points.' "
If a committee has a handful of key issues it wants to
resolve, it can assign a percentage value, out of 100%, to each, to
help analyze the responses and decide on finalists. She suggests
that, after weighting the key pain points, the committee can
rate the recordkeepers on how they would handle each, from
1 to 3: 1 means the recordkeeper failed to address the issue or
addressed it inadequately; 2 means the recordkeeper did an OK
job of explaining how it would resolve that issue; and 3 means the
recordkeeper did a good job.
Before meeting with finalist recordkeepers, Malcolm says, it
helps to review the key priorities of the search. " Payroll integration
is an important issue for many sponsors now, but [it's] boring
to talk about. So oftentimes in these meetings, the recordkeeper's
salespeople will focus more on showing flashy technology, "
she says. " I always remind clients, 'The salespeople are really
good, but let's not let the sales process blur what's important to
you. Let's keep in mind, what are they saying about what they're
going to do to help you fix your plan's problems?' " -Judy Ward

THE annual PLANSPONSOR Recordkeeping Survey is compiled
from self-reported data submitted by recordkeepers of defined
contribution (DC) plans (see list above). This year's results represent
nearly $9 trillion in DC assets and are estimated to
account for over 90% of the total DC market, according to
internal analysis based on the " 2021 Investment Company
[Institute] Fact Book. " Unless otherwise noted, all data reported
are as of December 31, 2020. On these pages, we present
a subset of the data, both in aggregate and by each of four
common plan types. More findings from the survey can be
