Manage Fiduciary Risk Through Investment Selection and Monitoring

Retirement plan regulations seem to be going through a never-ending cycle of revisions. Chief among most plan sponsors’ concerns is their level of fiduciary responsibility, and liability, for selecting and monitoring a retirement plan’s investment menu.

A key component of adhering to fiduciary duties under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is ensuring that plan participants have the potential to create a well-diversified portfolio that may help minimize the risk of large losses (the diversification rule). Those plan sponsors without the time, talent, or tools to monitor investment options for their plan are turning to third-party advisors for help with this important task.

Retirement Management Systems offers discretionary and non-discretionary fiduciary services to plan sponsors for the selection and monitoring of the investment menu.
