Providing / sponsoring a 401(k) shouldn’t add significant (non-operational) risk to your business. What risks should you retain and manage, and what risks should you outsource to experts?

As a 401(k) plan fiduciary, you already know that the current litigious environment is a challenging one to navigate.  And the role of Counsel or Finance in overseeing 401(k) plans continues to evolve.

401(k) plans are viewed by your employees as a vitally important opportunity to save for retirement and they are using the technologies provided by you to interact with the plan on a frequent basis. They are paying attention. In addition, regulations are becoming increasingly complicated, the number of class action lawsuits continues to rise, and employees want cheaper options with better performance. Is it even possible to reduce fiduciary risks in an expertly-run plan?

In a word – yes, and we’re here to help.

Please join us for breakfast and a collaborative roundtable session on October 8, and we’ll explain how.

Attorneys from Goodwin will give their unique perspective on fiduciary strategies and pitfalls, gleaned from current litigation trends; and experts from Mercer will share insights and best practices to manage 401(k) plan risk.
