“Investment committees want to be the best plan fiduciaries they can be. Yet today’s CFOs and human resource and treasury professionals are time starved. Many don’t want to take their hands off the wheel entirely, but they need more expertise to make decisions. We view discretionary services as an extension of traditional consulting services. We partner with our clients, picking up oversight at exactly the point where they need help – not based on a packaged plan. We tailor our service to support them as fiduciary partners.”
