Independent Fiduciary


Independent Fiduciary

Prudent, efficient retirement plan management requires expertise in three disciplines – ERISA, Investments and corporate governance. Most investment committees don’t possess all three. We do.

Here are some examples of how you can rely on us to ease your fiduciary burden: 

Assume a fiduciary role for specific plan assignments

  • Selection of investment options
  • Review and approval of fees and expenses
  • ERISA litigation settlement/monitoring
  • Pension risk transfer
  • Fiduciary determinations with respect to corporate restructurings
  • Prohibited transaction exemptions
  • Assess and monitor pricing and valuation processes
  • Manage company stock accounts

Provide a robust analytical framework

We work with plan sponsors to integrate, select and monitor:

  • Target-Date Funds
  • Annuities/Retirement Income Options
  • Environmental Social & Governance options (ESG)

Do it all, in partnership with you

We act as the named investment fiduciary for the plan. We select investment advisors and other service providers, assume fiduciary responsibility for plan management and oversight, all while communicating transparently with stakeholders.

    Why Target Date Funds aren’t that simple after all.

    In order to run a target date fund, there are an enormous number of decisions that need to be made. Learn how independent fiduciaries are uniquely qualified to help you make them.
