The investment of 401(k) and 403(b) plan assets can be a source of material risk for plan sponsors and plan fiduciaries. The selection and retention of investment options and platform providers is subject to ERISA’s stringent fiduciary rules. Fiduciaries in the 401(k) and 403(b) plan universe face ever-increasing scrutiny with respect to their investment decisions, and often find these decisions, and the processes employed in reaching them, being challenged by plaintiff’s attorneys, labor organizations and/or government regulators. Whether or not the challenges are warranted in any particular situation, the costs, which might include litigation expenses, adverse publicity for the plan sponsor and service providers, and diminished morale for the sponsor’s employees, can be staggering. The ability of plan sponsors and fiduciaries to identify and understand key issues arising in connection with the investment of 401(k) and 403(b) plan assets is a critical step in navigating the investment process and mitigating risk.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders and practitioners to help plan sponsors and plan fiduciaries understand and navigate the 401(k) and 403(b) plan investment landscape in year 2014 and beyond. The speakers will walk you through the most important issues in the mix in a two-hour LIVE webcast.
