Fiduciaries are required to act prudently in the interests of participants and beneficiaries. If you fail to meet your fiduciary duties, you can be held personally liable to restore any losses suffered by the plan. Chartered Financial Services maintains full plan accountability through RPAG’s advanced systems and processes that are governed by a robust technology platform. We utilize an independent compliance tool called the Fiduciary Fitness Program™ (FFP) to better protect fiduciaries and prepare plan participants. We also post all deliverables to the Fiduciary Briefcase™ so that you can enjoy secure access to your meeting summaries, compliance documents, newsletters, and more – anytime, anywhere.
Independent Investment Due Diligence
As a fiduciary, you make decisions that can impact the retirement savings of dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of plan participants. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires you to take your obligations seriously. At Chartered Financial Services, we are committed to providing independent investment analysis and staying ahead and on top of your fiduciary responsibility. Using our proprietary Scorecard℠ system, we evaluate investments using quantitative and qualitative metrics on more than 25,000 funds and dozens of investment platforms – ultimately helping you improve plan value and enhancing investment opportunities for your participants.
Comprehensive Fee Benchmarking and Vendor Search
Is it time you evaluated your current plan provider? As your partner, Chartered Financial Services is able to provide you with detailed reports about providers that may be better suited to meet your needs. Our process involves a thorough review of your current provider’s services including administrative, recordkeeping, compliance, website/statements, service management, and employee communication services.
Statistics indicate that many employees today are not saving enough for their retirement and will most likely fall financially short. Chartered Financial Services aims to help plan participants feel confident about the decisions they make by delivering presentations on financial planning topics and providing targeted communications via memos and educational meetings. We deliver our information in a way that is both easy to understand and intended to help them achieve their retirement goals.
We understand the significant concerns that you have as a retirement plan sponsor, and we look forward to providing the care that you, your business, and your employees deserve. Contact us today to get started.
