Let us come in to do a complimentary review, covering five key areas: Plan Design – Is the plan designed in a way that maximizes the goals of the organization? Administration – Do service providers handle most of the administration, or does that fall on your shoulders? Have there ever been errors as a result of manual or double entry? Investments - Using third party analytics, we will screen your investments against their peers, benchmarking performance, cost, and a fiduciary score for each investment in the menu. Fees - We will provide an accurate total plan cost, and compare this number against a benchmark. We will also provide a breakdown of costs for each service provider to your plan. This information can be used to determine reasonableness of fees. Fiduciary Liability - After the review, if there are areas of exposure for plan fiduciaries, we will discuss those. The goal is to help you provide a benefit that is operating in the best interests of the employees and their beneficiaries, which will in turn protect the fiduciaries to the plan.
