The letter presents the views of Financial Executives International (FEI) on 401(k) reform, as detailed in a letter to FEI members. FEI notes that 401(k) losses sustained by employees of Enron Corp. could have been avoided had workers been more prudent about portfolio diversification. FEI urges the U.S. Congress to be very cautious about changing current laws related to retirement savings.
