Our Fee Disclosure Analysis allows plan sponsors to be confident that a) all of their fees are known and b) that the services being provided for those fees are reasonable.
Larkspur, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Portico Wealth Advisors, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor and retirement plan consultancy firm, has recently introduced a new report that helps sponsors of 401(k)s and 403(b)s better understand their mandatory fee disclosure documents.
In the wake of recent 408(b)2 and 404(a)5 fee disclosure legislation, companies that sponsor retirement plans are encountering increased pressure to understand the source and magnitude of the various fees that their participants face. Charitable and governmental entities that sponsor 403(b) plans are under similar scrutiny.
Portico’s complimentary Fee Disclosure Analysis includes:
- Identification of all “covered service providers”
- An accounting of the services offered by each provider
- A determination regarding each provider's fiduciary status
- An assessment of fee reasonability in light of the services provided by each provider
“Fee disclosure has brought with it the usual confusion and administrative challenges that often follow regulation,” says Portico Wealth principal, David Tarantino. “Our Fee Disclosure Analysis allows plan sponsors to be confident that a) all of their fees are known and b) that the services being provided for those fees are reasonable.”
“Some companies are receiving 3 or 4 separate 408(b)2 disclosure documents,” says Tarantino. “These documents can be 30+ pages each and are often littered with vague legalese, making it very challenging for CFOs and HR Directors to easily understand their ‘all-in’ plan cost.”
