The retirement landscape is changing dramatically, and the risk of standing still is a challenge for all of us in today's defined contribution marketplace. However, this new world of investing offers many opportunities for us as well.

At BlackRock, we believe it is our responsibility to help our clients gain an understanding of both in order to help them achieve the outcomes they need. To do this effectively, we need to look to the future and develop compelling solutions for participants. It was in this spirit that we brought together all of you to share ideas and insights during the BlackRock DC Partners Summit.

Here you will find the slides of each of the presentations delivered by a roster of senior BlackRock professionals at the event as well as additional resources that you can review and share with your teams. If you missed the event, please take this chance to familiarize yourself with our latest thinking on themes that are central to the DC marketplace.

Thank you for your partnership, and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
