Fiduciary Services

What is my risk today?

When employers offer a retirement plan, they (by default) become the named fiduciary and Administrator to that plan. Often, the employer does not have the knowledge or experience to manage the plan correctly according to fiduciary standards. Even more surprising, most employers do not know they are the responsible fiduciary.

If and when a retirement plan breach occurs, the employer is CORPORATELY and PERSONALLY responsible and will be required to make the plan whole as if the mistake had not happened.


It is possible to delegate fiduciary responsibility to a professional firm. We can accept the responsibility and ensure the safety, quality and efficiency of your retirement plan. 

Be mindful

Our competitors do offer a fiduciary solution but they only take half the responsibility and charge the same amount of money. Make sure to ask them who would become the named 402 if they provide this service?
