As stewards of your plan, we provide fiduciary protection to help minimize risk and maximize participant's success.
Your plan, and how you manage it, increasingly is falling under intense scrutiny—not only from participants, but also from the regulatory bodies that are responsible for protecting participants' interests.
As your partner, we can share much of this fiduciary responsibility with you, and implement a disciplined process to better manage your fiduciary obligations.
We continually monitor and review your plan's investment options, fees, and services for adherence to plan objectives and guidelines.
We create and maintain a fiduciary audit file to house documents and record the process you follow to manage your plan.
We help establish and oversee the group of individuals appointed to ensure that your plan is fulfilling its objectives.
We help you develop an Investment Policy Statement, the guiding document that establishes a consistent process for evaluating and selecting investment options.
We conduct a thorough evaluation of your plan to ensure compliance with ERISA, plan documents and current legislation. We also examine plan fees and expenses to make sure costs are reasonable relative to the value and services being provided.
We conduct ongoing reviews and evaluate service providers to help ensure that our clients receive the best value.
