News and Updates

Inteva Products Fund Change Announcement - January 2014

Inteva Products has announced changes that will impact certain mutual fund investment options in the Inteva Products, LLC Salaried Employees’ Savings and Retirement Plan ("the Plan").

The pending changes will include closing several of the mutual funds currently offered in Plan, as well as offering several new options. All changes impacting the Plan will take effect on April 1, 2014.

To discuss these important changes to the Inteva 401(k) plan and how to allocate your portfolio in light of the new investment menu, do not hesitate to contact Mainstay toll-free at 1-866-444-6246.

Principal Financial Group to replace Fidelity as 401(k) plan administrator

Effective January 1, 2011, Principal Financial Group will replace Fidelity as the administrator for the Inteva Products Savings and Retirement Plans for Salaried and Hourly Employees. With Principal Financial Group, Inteva Products employees will continue to have online access to their account and plan provisions such as eligibility, waiting periods, and benefit structure will not change. As with any plan transfer there will be a short “black out period” where employees will not have access to accounts and some fund changes are to be expected. Employees will be made aware of the timing of the “black out period” and any fund changes prior to the transfer.

Reinstatement of savings plan match for Inteva Products Salaried Employees – October 2010

Beginning January 1, 2011, Inteva Products will reinstate the savings plan match for employees with at least six months of service. Inteva will match 50% of Before-Tax Contributions up to 5% of base pay, excluding Catch Up Contributions. Mainstay recommends that all Inteva salaried employees are contributing at least 5% in order to take advantage of the company match.

Special Note for Inteva Products Employees

With the transition from Delphi to Inteva Products, employees have various options for the disposition of assets in their Delphi 401(k) account. The available options are:

  • Roll-over your account balance into the Inteva Products Savings Plan
  • Roll-over your account balance into an IRA
  • Leave your account balance in the Delphi 401(k)

Important - Any Delphi 401(k) assets rolled into the Inteva plan will be locked in that plan, and you will not be able to roll these assets to an IRA until age 59 1/2 or separation of service from Inteva.

Please contact us to discuss these very important 401(k) plan decisions and any retirement planning questions by calling toll-free 1-866-444-6246.


Fund Commentary

Note on Fidelity's Freedom Funds

Fidelity's Freedom funds are designed for investors targeting specific retirement dates as opposed to style focuses (Growth or Income). The longer the targeted time period, the more equity exposure the fund has. As the target date becomes closer, the funds reduce their stock exposure and increase bond and cash equivalent holdings to lower the investor's risk of a loss. 

The Freedom funds offer a passive approach to portfolio management that may appeal to some retirement plan participants. However, we believe the asset allocation decisions provided by these funds are crude at best. The Freedom Funds attempt to make a decision about an investor's asset mix based solely on age. An investor's financial goals (desire for gains) and tolerance for risk are other key factors that should ultimately determine investment strategy and asset allocation. Ideally, your wealth, desire for gains, risk tolerance, as well as your age and investment time horizon are all considered carefully when developing the proper asset allocation for your portfolio. Because of the "mechanical approach" to changing the asset allocations over time and the Freedom Funds' mediocre performance, we prefer an active approach to portfolio management.

Please reference "Target-Date Funds Face Regulation", published in The Wall Street Journal.
