The retirement plan industry today talks a great deal about fiduciary risk and outsourcing but in a lopsided way: the conversation is all about investment process even though the overwhelming majority of the pain and problems are due to administration. There is an unmet need for genuine help with respect to the client's administrative and supervisory burden and solutions are emerging to meet that need. What does this actually mean? How much difference is there between a 3(16) Administrator and a traditional TPA? The session explores these questions as well as the implications of outsourcing all three of the principal fiduciary roles: ERISA Sec. 402(a) Named Fiduciary, 3(16) Administrator, and Discretionary Trustee. We discuss outsourcing in the context of both single and multiple employer plans.
