Case Study: Retirement Plan Fiduciary Basics

This new case study explores the challenges faced by small organizations in the management of
their retirement plans and how improved governance processes can address these issues. It focuses on the lack of a due diligence process in the management of a 401(k) retirement plan, a common issue of small plan sponsors. Without a formalized process, many plan sponsors feel uncertain about the adequacy of their decision-making for the plan.

Multnomah Group helped create a governance and review process to fix the oversight issues a client was facing in decision making for their plan and built a more efficient review structure for the future. To create a best practice investment fund menu, our advisors educated the client on investment policy and assisted in creating an investment menu that followed the policy guidelines. We also provided our ongoing fee benchmarking, demonstrating how this annual review can lead to better vendor pricing and allow plan sponsors to make more educated decisions.

By following through on its new governance and review processes, our client created a more cost-efficient plan for employees, which not only adds value to employees but also fosters greater engagement in their financial futures.
