401(k) Plan Asset Allocation, Account Balances, and Loan Activity In 2010

Employee Benefit Research Institute’s annual publication using their data on
• 23.4 million 401(k) plan participants, in
• 64,455 employer-sponsored 401(k) plans, holding
• $1.414 trillion in assets.

401(k) Plan Asset Allocation, Account Balances, and Loan Activity In 2010 | EBRI

From their executive summary:
  • THE BULK OF 401(K) ASSETS CONTINUED TO BE INVESTED IN STOCKS.
  • SEVENTY PERCENT OF 401(K) PLANS INCLUDED TARGET-DATE FUNDS IN THEIR INVESTMENT LINEUP AT YEAR-END 2010.
  • MORE NEW OR RECENT HIRES INVESTED THEIR 401(K) ASSETS IN BALANCED FUNDS, INCLUDING TARGET-DATE FUNDS.
  • 401(K) PARTICIPANTS CONTINUED TO SEEK DIVERSIFICATION OF THEIR INVESTMENTS.
  • PARTICIPANTS’ 401(K) LOAN BALANCES DECLINED SLIGHTLY IN 2010.
  • THE YEAR-END 2010 AVERAGE ACCOUNT BALANCE IN THE DATABASE WAS 3.4 PERCENT HIGHER THAN THE YEAR BEFORE, BUT MAY NOT ACCURATELY REFLECT THE EXPERIENCE OF TYPICAL 401(K) PARTICIPANTS IN 2010.

This certainly makes sense, since more and more plans are using an age-appropriate "target" fund as the default.
