Join Us for Managing 401(k) Plan Fiduciary Risk on 11/8

In today's ever-changing and challenging 401(k) environment, plan sponsors find themselves in a new and seemingly complex environment. Regulations are becoming increasingly complicated, the number of class action lawsuits continues to rise, and employees insist on access to less expensive options with better performance, without understanding what the fees include. Retirement plan sponsors have an obligation and responsibility to reduce their fiduciary risk and improve the effectiveness of their retirement program for their participants.

Joined by Muriel Knapp, of Mercer, Verrill Dana attorney and Chair of the firm's Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Group, Suzanne Meeker, will provide a unique perspective on fiduciary standards in light of the current ERISA litigation landscape. The two will also discuss how the fiduciary processes play out in litigation, insights on successful strategies to implement, and common pitfalls to avoid.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 8:00am to 10:30am. Click here to register for this complimentary seminar.
