Fiduciary Responsibility

"To promote a culture of fiduciary responsibility and improve the decision-making process of investment fiduciaries."

Our Fiduciary management is intended to identify the critical moving pieces in fulfilling your organization's fiduciary role as a corporate retirement plan sponsor. A process built around the four cornerstones of organize, formalize, implement and monitor will contribute to a more successful retirement program and mitigate potential fiduciary liabilities.

Investment stewards wear many professional hats and the management and HR executives lament their lack of time and tools to fulfill their fiduciary accountabilities. Our review of the process and metrics will demonstrate a due diligence that is much more robust than most companies would do on their own.
