• Fiduciary Education And Training

    Retirement Plans require prudent governance. That’s why plan sponsors and fiduciaries have a responsibility to become educated about what they have to do in order to properly administer their company retirement plan to a fiduciary standard of care. Plan sponsors and fiduciaries also have to keep abreast of any new rules and regulations that may impact the way they execute their roles.

    We understand that plan sponsors have varying levels of understanding about their roles and responsibilities. We also understand that it can be extremely difficult for plan sponsors to stay on top of all the changes the IRS, the DOL, Congress and the Courts regularly impose on retirement plans and their fiduciaries.

    That’s why we developed our Fiduciary Fitness ProgramTM.

    Our Fiduciary Fitness ProgramTM provides a comprehensive, holistic approach to fiduciary best practices. Our curriculum consists of twenty-one courses, divided into six major categories:
