The plan sponsor of a retirement savings plan is an employer who offers a retirement savings plan to employees.
The sponsor is responsible for choosing the plan, the plan provider, and the plan administrator, and for deciding which investments will be offered through the plan.
Assist & Educate on Fiduciary Responsibilities
Educating our Plan Sponsors on responsibilities as fiduciaries and establishing and fully documenting procedures to ensure compliance is one of our most important roles.
Establish a Suitable Investment Policy Statement
We help sponsors establish investment policies and procedures that leaves room for fiduciaries to use their best judgment given each circumstance. Rigid investment policies that are not followed could be used against the fiduciaries in a court of law. Having a well-written policy isn’t enough though, reviewing the IPS at least every two years, or any time significant regulatory changes are made, is imperative.
Managing Requests for Proposals from Service Providers
Our motto is “if it aint broke don’t fix it”. But if it is broken, we lead the charge to finding the best and most competitive vendor for our clients’ 401(k) Plan.
Quarterly Due Diligence
Our extensive quarterly due diligence review provides clients with ‘the state of their Retirement Plan’. We inform on the market, educational campaign, legislative updates, and investment reporting.
