Douglas Fisher, senior vice president of business practice and policy, Fidelity Investments
Douglas Fisher Doug Fisher is senior vice president of business practice and policy for Fidelity Investments, the largest mutual fund company in the US, the number one provider of workplace retirement savings plans and a leading online brokerage firm. In this role, Fisher is responsible for developing and coordinating legislative and regulatory policies across all Fidelity business units. Before joining Fidelity in December 1997, Fisher was tax counsel to the US Senate Finance Committee. With the Senate Finance Committee, he briefed members of Congress on the design and taxation of retirement, insurance, health and welfare and education savings plans. Fisher was involved in writing the pension, health and insurance provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, the Small Business Job Protection Act of 1996, and the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 including the Simple retirement plan and Roth IRA. Most recently, Fisher led Fidelity's and the industry's efforts in convincing Congress and the Administration to include pension, IRA, and education savings expansion provisions in the 2001 tax cut. Fisher is also a frequent speaker and writer on legislative topics affecting the industry and consults with clients on these matters. Born in 1957, Fisher received a bachelor of science degree from the University of Washington in 1980 and a juris doctor degree from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, in 1986.

Paradoxically, says Doug Fisher, Senior Vice President at Fidelity Investments, larger account balances might be prompting bigger loans.
"I call it the 'false sense of continued prosperity' effect," he said. "When 401k balances go up because the stock market rises, people feel like they have more wealth and borrow more." The actual result, however, could be significant long-term damage to Americans' retirement security. For one thing, Fisher says, many workers cut back their retirement contributions or stop saving altogether while they're paying back a loan - often for as long as two years. This is particularly damaging for younger workers, Fisher said. "The insidious effect here is that if you're in your mid-20s and early 30s, you're reducing savings at a point in your career when early savings matter," said Fisher.

"Employers can spend more time on retirement because they're starting to figure out health care reform," says Doug Fisher, senior vice president with Fidelity Investments.
As the DC plan becomes the primary retirement vehicle and employers address their health plans to mitigate the effects of the Cadillac tax, employers are bringing health and retirement together. "Employees have to make a health care decision, a health savings decision [with an HSA] and they have to make a retirement decision, and many of those decisions involve the same paycheck," says Fisher. "It can be very confusing if you're not providing the right tools and guidance to integrate those decisions." Only 1% of the organizations that offer DC and health savings account plans set their contributions in an integrated fashion, according to Towers Watson's recently released North American defined contribution plan sponsor survey report. In addition, of the employers that offer both plan types, just 19% educate workers about the wealth accumulation benefits of saving through the DC plan instead of the HSA. Fisher sees a trend toward a simplification of investment funds in 401(k) plans, either through lowering the number of options available or adding managed accounts and target-date funds. "Employees are generally not appropriately invested," he says.

"Employer contributions play a vital role in helping Americans reach their retirement savings goals," Doug Fisher, senior vice president of Workplace Investing at Fidelity said in a press release, which notes that employers currently pitch in an average of $3,540 per employee per year.
