Investment Due Diligence & Monitoring

Once we help you select a plan provider, we establish a due diligence process to help you plan and document fiduciary control activities and responsibilities. Market volatility makes it critical for retirement plan sponsors and fiduciaries to develop and maintain investment due diligence procedures and supporting documentation. We work with your retirement plan committee to develop and maintain the plan's investment strategy.
