Flexible Fiduciary Support
We are able to act as a 3(21) investment advisor or 3(38) investment manager, providing a fiduciary standard to your retirement plan.
A 3(21) investment advisor:
Provides customized investment recommendations to the plan and can provide general financial planning and asset allocation recommendations to participants to help them achieve their retirement goals
Typically selects plan investments and presents them to the plan committee on a regular basis
Does not assume which investments to include as options for participants – you maintain that control
A 3(38) investment manager:
Has discretion and control over the plan’s assets and management
Can accept the significant responsibility (and liability) of selecting, monitoring, and replacing investments
Assume legal responsibility and liability for individual investments selected, allowing you to better manage and mitigate your fiduciary risk
