What is a Collective Trust Fund?
Collective Trust Funds have been growing in popularity. These funds are tax-exempt and administered by banks and trust companies, CTFs are available for both defined benefit and defined contribution plans and can only consist of assets that are exempt from federal income tax such as retirement, pension, profit sharing, stock bonus, or other trusts.

The Appeal of Collective Trust Funds
Part of the current appeal of Collective Trust Funds is their low startup and operational costs and their utilization in target dated portfolios. These low costs, combined with the potential for significant returns have increased their popularity, along with improvements that have allowed some funds to be valued daily, a necessity for 401(k)s.
As is the case with other fiduciary assets, participating interests in a CTF are not FDIC-insured. In addition, participating interests in a CTF are not subject to potential claims by a bank’s creditors, and not overseen by the SEC regulations that mutual funds are held to. This lack of regulation, of course, has both positive and negative aspects, as far as investors are concerned.
