Before, many employers would manage retirement funds for employees through defined benefit pensions, allocating a pool of employee funds to a mix of assets including private equity. Today, many employers are instead opting for defined contribution plans like 401(k)s, making individuals responsible for funding their accounts and picking investments.Inflows into private sector 401(k)s have outpaced those into corporate pensions every year since 1987, according to 2014 figures, the latest available from Department of Labor data tabulated by the Investment Company Institute. Americans and their employers put $349 billion into 401(k)s in 2014, more than 3.5 times the volume that flowed into pensions, the data show.While the shift is loosening private equity grip on mom and pop retirement dollar, the growing use of target date funds may offer private equity a chance to get back in.

One of his first decisions as race director was to order green race shirts as a nod to the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2007, he started presenting a stuffed penguin to the final official finisher of the race in memory of Megan McClung, a Marine Corps officer killed in Iraq..
Kobe fan here. Previous to Lebron arrival, I was reluctant to get him, but now I accepted him because he will lead our team to success. I also give him more respect for coming here without another star and to the Western Conference. “The next thing you know, we’re going to see high chairs with iPad holders and strollers with tablets,” Steyer said. “This is a fundamental change in the nature of childhood.”That shift, experts say, comes with its own challenges. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages any screen time for those younger than 2.
The Vaporfly 4% is targeting professional long distance race runners, so the cost and durability is less of an issue. You use other shoes for training (maybe the cheaper Zoom Fly, Pegasus, etc), and might have Nike or someone else giving you the shoes anyway. The shoes being ugly doesn matter as much either, if the lightness, carbon fiber plate, etc matches Nike performance claims.
