UPDATED REPORT! Report Offers Steps for Building an Optimal Retirement Plan Investment Menu

Since plan fiduciaries may be exposed to personal liability, it is prudent to have a process in place for the selection and monitoring of investment options.

  • fosters ERISA compliance;
  • provides desirable investment choices for plan participants; and
  • impacts retirement outcomes.
