Investment Consulting

We offer a comprehensive process to analyze, monitor, track, and replace investments. It includes proprietary fund scoring methodology, proprietary asset allocation methodology, independent research, and quarterly alignment with your Investment Policy Statement (IPS).

Plan Compliance & Design Consulting

We review your plan features to ensure they’re appropriate to your goals, review administrative needs, and oversee plan mergers and acquisitions. We evaluate potential plan enhancements. And we’re experienced in creating non-qualified plans for your executives. We also offer compliance consulting that includes specialties like DOL and IRS audit representation, and plan document maintenance and assistance.

Education/Communication Consulting

We evaluate, develop, and implement education and communication objectives based on your participant demographics.

Fiduciary Risk Management

We begin by staying abreast of legislative and regulatory changes. We review your committee charter that delegates fiduciary responsibility from your board of directors; then we establish fiduciary best practices for your plan. We create a checklist to match against responsibilities set out in your IPS, maintain plan documents and meeting minutes, and establish a fiduciary audit file. At all times we maintain compliance with ERISA and with the Universal Fiduciary Standards of Care.
