This includes managing administrative deadlines, understanding your plan’s investment menu, and keeping pace with the evolving regulatory environment.

3(21) fiduciary advisor – a paid service provider that gives investment recommendations but does not necessarily have discretionary authority to make the actual investment decisions. Instead, the 3(21) fiduciary advisor typically provides suggestions to the plan sponsor, who is free to accept or reject those recommendations and who must then execute the investment decisions for the plan. The plan sponsor and the 3(21) fiduciary advisor, therefore, share fiduciary responsibility. 3(38) investment manager – an investment manager who has been specifically appointed to have full discretionary authority and control to make the actual investment decisions. The manager may select, monitor, remove and replace the investment options offered under the plan. The 3(38) must acknowledge its fiduciary status in writing.
