Plan Fiduciaries’ Responsibilities for Investment Management

May 15, 2012 at 9:26 am Leave a comment

The EBSA has a list of advice addressing some of the issues that plan fiduciaries encounter when they are looking for and reviewing an investment adviser or manager.  The fact sheet located at http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/newsroom/fs053105.html is designed to help them with their duties regarding investment and fee monitoring.   Investment professionals vary greatly as far as capability, integrity and education.   They need to be held accountable just like other professionals.  An ethical and appropriately qualified investment professional can be challenging to find.   However, the plan fiduciaries are responsible for doing just that.  Please refer to my Industry Resources page for a link to the SEC’s tips page.
