Managing Defined Contribution Plan Investment Policy Statements


Posted on February 10, 2015, by Fred Reish in fiduciary, prudent. Comments Off on Managing Defined Contribution Plan Investment Policy Statements

I recently wrote an article for JP Morgan about the fiduciary process for implementing investment policy statements . . . with particular emphasis on the monitoring of investments and investment managers in participant-directed plans. The article outlines a step-by-step approach for identifying investments to be placed on a watch list, the use of the watch list, and the process for determining whether to remove and replace the investment. I believe that the article is both a good outline of ERISA’s requirements for a prudent process and an educational piece for plan fiduciaries. It can be found under the publications section of my blog, here: http://fredreish.com/publications/, or directly at http://bit.ly/1MayGaf.
