Independent Fiduciary Services for 401(k) and 403(b) Plans

Federal law requires plan sponsors to take fiduciary responsibility for their company’s retirement plan. This demands a level of investment expertise and a time commitment that most employers don’t have.

Fortunately, plan sponsors are permitted to hire independent experts to assist in the critical role of investment fiduciary. Partnering with a professional fiduciary can help manage the responsibility for investment oversight, simplify plan management and help reduce your workload.

When you hire Fidelis Fiduciary Management, an independent provider of investment fiduciary services, your life is simpler. You gain the confidence that comes from knowing you have credentialed investment fiduciaries who are not tied to any single service provider, and an up-to-date, customized investment menu.

Fidelis works closely with plan advisors who prefer to partner with an outside fiduciary. We stay in close communication with advisors and value their input.
