Our Client Approach

  • Voya approaches the design and management of its DC product line with a fiduciary's eye towards suitability, prudence and conservatism.
  • We believe DC investment options should exhibit the following characteristics:
    • Robust and time-tested investment process
    • Stable and talented investment team with tenure of 3 years or more
    • Attractive performance evidenced by a trifecta of strong risk-adjusted returns, asymmetric upside/downside capture and modest yet stable alpha
    • Investment approach that aims for above-median peer group rankings over short times frames, which is expected to deliver top quartile ranking over long time frames
    • Low tracking error and style purity to allow participants to design an asset allocation around core building blocks and avoid large negative surprises
    • Transparency and explainability of results
