Retirement Plan Judiciary Consulting
Guiding plan sponsors through the regulatory, fiduciary, and investment labyrinth.
The DOL’s and SEC’s combined efforts to regulate the investment and advice industry over the years, by strengthening the application of the fiduciary standard, have been challenging. Serving in client’s best interests by removing conflicts is common sense. We welcome the rest of the industry, with or without additional fiduciary regulations, to join our way of life – to carry out actions in good faith with undivided loyalty and due care. Learn more about our fiduciary services:
We help ERISA stewards develop a framework and process to meet their responsibilities and obligations in achieving the overall goals and objectives of the retirement plan.
Plan Design Consulting
We believe careful plan design with provisions that overcome the drawbacks of participant behaviors would positively impact retirement outcome.
ERISA Investment Consulting
We create a reasoned and practical Investment Policy Statement that guides the process to identify, select and monitor prudent investment methodologies and vehicles.
