Fiduciary standards have become explicitly applicable to defined contribution plans. Most employers and individuals do not understand full scope of fiduciary responsibilities and might find themselves exposed to high levels of risk and liability. We offer 3(21) and 3(38) fiduciary investment advisory services and function under the Fiduciary Standard of Care to help mitigate your fiduciary risk. FIRM Advisory Team has Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF) designations, which means we employ the “gold standard” of fiduciary excellence in our business practices.
We monitor and report on industry trends, legislative and regulatory changes that may have an impact on our clients’ plan documents and benefit offerings. We research and make recommendations that address fiduciary liability concerns for plan sponsors. We believe that a current and closely followed Investment Policy Statement (IPS), and ongoing commitment to due diligence are key safe harbors in helping plan sponsors meet their fiduciary responsibilities.
