Durham, NC (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
Xponential Growth Solutions is pleased to announce the 2015 North Carolina Fiduciary Summit. This time, Xponential Growth Solutions makes a stop for the first time ever in North Carolina. This Fiduciary Summit will bring together both local and national experts to interact with employers made up of executives in finance, human resources and benefits who serve on their 401(k) or 403(b) plan committees. Speakers will provide insights to help employers reduce fiduciary risk, identify plan upgrades, and make better decisions that positively impact participants.
The educational event will be hosted by Joe Gordon, 401(k) Fiduciary & Managing Partner at Gordon Asset Management, LLC who emphasizes, "With the regulatory onslaught by the Department of Labor, and numerous court cases settled in the past 18 months, plan sponsors will appreciate the update on fiduciary best practices and guidelines to adopt right away to stay out harms way. We will explore best practices on fiduciary governance, revenue sharing, compliance with service provider fee disclosure regulations and how to control plan expenses as your plan grows. We will also focus on participant outcomes and best practices, since after all, the primary duty of the fiduciary is to act solely in the interest of plan participants and their beneficiaries for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits".
Additional speakers include: Jim Culbreth, Jr. - Partner at Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP.

- What Every Fiduciary Needs to Know for 2015 & 2016
- Participant Trends – Improving Outcomes by Measuring
