Touting mutual funds as safe havens for tax-exempt income could be a great tactic for retirement plan providers after 2008, particularly as baby boomers look for ways to preserve their assets, according to Paul Disdier of The Dreyfus Corp. It is now more important for employers to provide comprehensive and reassuring retirement planning education and advice through a third-party provider.
