July was a particularly slow month for trading for 401(k) investors in defined contribution plans, with no days of above-normal1 trading activity, according to the Alight Solutions 401(k) IndexTM. This continues the lull in trading activity observed over the previous two months (May and June each saw only one day of above-normal trading). When trades happened, investors favored fixed income funds over equities.

A “normal” level of relative transfer activity is when the net daily movement of participants’ balances as a percent of total 401(k) balances within the Alight Solutions 401(k) Index™ equals between 0.3 times and 1.5 times the average daily net activity of the preceding 12 months. A “high” relative transfer activity day is when the net daily movement exceeds two times the average daily net activity. A “moderate” relative transfer activity day is when the net daily movement is between 1.5 and two times the average daily net activity of the preceding 12 months.
Target date funds also include the amounts in target risk funds. The amount in the target risk funds is less than 10% of the total.
