The TJX Companies, Inc. General Savings/Profit Sharing Plan is a defined contribution plan with a profit-sharing component and 401k feature. This plan has a BrightScope Rating of 56.
One of the key concerns is that the plan only has 29 investment options to choose from which is common for most 401k type plans.
Most 401k, Profit Sharing or ESOP plans do not have active management so there is really no one specifically guiding the plan investments. What this means is that like most traditional investment companies, in the event of a severe downturn the investment advisors have no method for moving to a lower risk profile automatically.
With the WealthSentry system we participate in, retiree’s accounts are automatically re-balanced to lower risk portfolios in the event of a potential severe downturn. Learn more in our guide, 6 Critical Steps You Must Take Now.
