401(k) ProsperityTM Plan Fiduciary Support Services

Every day, you’re watching out for the well-being of your employees. But who’s watching out for you?

Making prudent decisions regarding your company retirement plan requires significant time, regulatory knowledge, and deep investment expertise. Without all three, employers can unwittingly open themselves and their plan to liability. The problem is, becoming an ERISA expert may not be the best use of your time or talent, and appointing an investment committee alone will not satisfy the full range of checks and balances required to close the gap on potential liability or litigation.

As an investment fiduciary advisor, 401(k) Prosperity™ serves as an extension of your internal team, assisting you in establishing and/or maintaining a consistent, ongoing, documented process of prudent oversight and due diligence. We will help identify the potential risk to the plan sponsor so you can choose to accept the risk, delegate the risk, or institute procedures to mitigate the risk. More importantly, we have a vested interest, serving your plan and its participants in an investment fiduciary capacity and sharing fiduciary responsibility and accountability.

The 401(k) Prosperity™ advisory system was developed around our strengths, which include our ability to:

  • Provide objective, timely, relevant, and actionable advice from an independent perspective

  • Serve as ERISA 3(21) investment fiduciaries and 3(38) investment managers

  • Bring competent and dedicated team expertise across all aspects of company retirement plan design and management through a team of independent, investment fiduciary advisors, each of whom has earned one or more of the following industry designations and/or certifications:
