How well are you meeting your fiduciary obligations? Assess your retirement plan management with a complimentary Scorecard and Consultation
Managing effective and compliant employer-sponsored retirement plans demands a thorough understanding of the requirements and a commitment to meeting a set of stringent fiduciary obligations — a matter of particular importance for Tribes. Tribal fiduciaries — whether they are members of Tribal councils, investment committees or retirement plans— hold a special position of trust as guardians of Tribal assets. Charged with the responsibility of following sound fiscal practices, Tribal fiduciaries should regularly take stock of whether and how well they are fulfilling their duty of care.
Score Your Retirement Plan Management: Does It Make the Grade?
As a third-party fiduciary accredited to give qualified, independent assessments on retirement plan processes, REDW Wealth has developed a 14-question Retirement Plan Sponsor Scorecard that gauges how well you are fulfilling your duties as a sponsor of your Tribe’s retirement plan. In addition to discovering any gaps in compliance, you’ll gain a better understanding of just what’s required to run a successful retirement plan that aims to safeguard and grow your Tribe’s wealth.
Get Guidance for Improving Plan Success from Industry Experts
Based on the results of the Retirement Plan Sponsor Scorecard, our experienced Wealth advisors provide an independent assessment of your plan’s investment and organizational processes according to the Global Fiduciary Standard of Excellence established by the Center for Fiduciary Studies. What’s more, our team of Accredited Investment Fiduciaries (AIF®) can offer guidance or training on improving employees’ understanding of plan features and helping them make better-informed investment decisions.
