Case Studies – Corporate 401 (K) Plan
One of our clients has 100 employees covered under a 401(k) Plan and they were paying 0.20% for recordkeeping services. We recommended the client conduct a fee benchmarking. We requested proposals from 3 different 401(k) recordkeepers; including the current provider. After receiving the competitor’s proposals, the current recordkeeper cut their fee to 0.10%. With our help, the plan cut their recordkeeping costs in half and did not have the hassle of moving the plan to a new recordkeeper.
A corporation asked us to review their 401(k) investment options. Upon our review, we noticed that the mutual fund share classes being used had very high fees. We explained how this could expose the trustee to ERISA and Department of Labor issues. Acting as a fiduciary, we were able to find lower cost share classes for the same mutual funds, which resulted in lower fees for the plan participants.
