The Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association (DCIIA) is a non-profit association dedicated to enhancing the retirement security of America’s workers. To do this, DCIIA fosters a dialogue among the leaders of the defined contribution community who are passionate about improving defined contribution outcomes. DCIIA’s diverse group of members include investment managers, consultants and advisors, law firms, record keepers, insurance companies, plan sponsors and other thought leaders who are collectively committed to the best interests of plan participants.


DCIIA was founded in 2010 by a coalition of 42 industry firms who shared a view that, if the right steps are taken with a focus on participants, the existing defined contribution system has the ability to support positive retirement outcomes for working Americans. By bringing the right people together, and working collaboratively to inform both the industry and policy discussions, DCIIA seeks to serve as an unbiased, informed resource in support of the defined contribution community.
