401K and Retirement 

Seamless, detail-focused implementation

Defined contribution plans are a large and growing part of our institutional advisory business. We work with plan sponsors in both discretionary and non-discretionary arrangements, but always as a fiduciary of the plan. We help plan sponsors fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities by advising on appropriate investment menus, costs, regulatory issues, and governance structures. Our approach allows clients to focus on managing other human resources functions with the assurance that retirement plan oversight is handled with diligence and expertise.

Retirement Plan Consultants

We bring objectivity, transparency, and rigorous review to retirement plans, enabling plan sponsors to attend to other human resources tasks.

How do I make sense of retirement plan investments and track their progress while communicating with participants?

Is the plan getting the best possible performance at the best possible price from its investments and service providers?

Who is legally responsible for the oversight of this plan?

We begin by understanding, reviewing, and supplementing the governance structure. This may involve:

Creating an investment policy

Offering guidelines on how to structure a committee

Creating a fiduciary checklist
