Even, participant phone calls will be serviced by both Vanguard and Infosys. With this joint effort, both the companies will provide a cloud-based recordkeeping platform that would enable greater insights and personalisation to help deliver better outcomes for participants and sponsors.

"For decades, Vanguard has propelled best practices and innovation within our DC business and across the industry to steward the financial futures of millions of Americans saving for retirement. Our partnership with Infosys will embolden these efforts, enabling a groundbreaking approach to plan administration," Martha King, managing director of Vanguard Institutional Investor Group, said.
