Businesses | Retirement Plan Consulting | Fiduciary Best Practices

HORAN helps reduce your compliance concerns by collaborating with you to identify your greatest areas of risk through our In-Depth Risk Assessment report and enhancing your protection leveraging fiduciary best practices.

We provide specific, actionable direction to help you address liabilities and minimize your company’s risk factors in the event of a Department of Labor audit. In addition, as Employee Retirement Income Securities Act (ERISA) section 3(21) advisors, HORAN acts as a co-fiduciary, sharing your fiduciary responsibility and liability. Not all firms are willing to act as a co-fiduciary on your behalf. With HORAN as your trusted advisor, peace of mind has never been so easy.

Partnering with You to Navigate Compliance

Structuring your Oversight Committee

Your retirement plan committee is one of your most valuable assets. HORAN will aid in the structuring of the committee and selection of committee members. Finally, chartering your plan committee helps to ensure that they are prepared and protected in their role.

Committee Meeting Minutes

Being able to demonstrate the decision-making process is a critical responsibility of any plan committee. Our team of Relationship Managers assists in preparing committee meeting minutes as a critical record. 

Fiduciary Training

Our experts help you navigate the complexity of new pension laws, identify high-risk areas of concern and enhance protection for your business. 

Annual Stewardship Review

We believe in the importance of due diligence and demonstrating our value as your advisor on an annual basis. As a result, your organization will receive a customized stewardship report each year detailing plan and investment performance.

Co-Fiduciary Status

We partner with you to share fiduciary risk and acknowledge Fiduciary and/or co-Fiduciary while keeping you informed of other ERISA fiduciary services available.
