In addition, TIAA-CREF has announced that Stevenson University has chosen it as the sole recordkeeper for the university’s 403(b) plan. Stevenson is the third-largest independent university in Maryland, with more than 4,400 students pursuing bachelor’s, master’s and adult bachelor’s programs at locations in Stevenson and Owings Mills.

The Nestlé Smart$aving Program consists of three 401(k) plans and a nonqualified plan with nearly $4 billion in assets under administration and approximately 45,600 participants.

The participation rate, according to Nestlé USA’s director of savings and retirement, Shirley Zabiegala, is 92 percent.

With approximately 13 million individual and institutional customers in the U.S., Voya had $11 billion in revenue in 2014. The company had $450 billion in total assets under management and administration as of September 30, 2015.

Stevenson University’s plan consists of approximately $63 million in assets for more than 700 employees.

The decision to name TIAA-CREF as sole recordkeeper came after the university conducted a full due diligence review of its retirement plan with the assistance of Fiduciary Investment Advisors, LLC, based in Windsor, Connecticut.

As a result of the review, Stevenson implemented a new investment menu that includes TIAA-CREF annuities; a series of target-date funds; and several nonproprietary mutual funds.

TIAA-CREF provides retirement services in the academic, research, medical and cultural fields. As of December 31, 2015, it had $854 billion in assets under management.
