As DC plan sponsors and investment committee members, you need to provide your participants with the best investment options available. That’s not always easy, especially when a spotlight is focused on the lack of retirement readiness and fee litigation.

In order to gain additional resources and expertise in managing the investment lineup, many DC sponsors are adopting a discretionary investment management approach.  You maintain strategic control of the plan and lineup, but delegate day-to-day investment decisions to limit your fiduciary liability.

That’s where we come in.

25+ year track record of taking discretion for large retirement plans.

As one of the largest discretionary investment managers, we have a 25-year track record of taking discretion for large retirement plans and well-known institutional clients. In fact, we've added more than $2 billion in new DC assets since the beginning of 2016.

The discretionary model actually shields you against fiduciary liability, reducing the list of your responsibilities. And because we use a multi-manager discretionary model, you get enhanced exposure to top managers and asset classes with potential cost advantages over most retail fund options.
