Plan fiduciaries must act as prudent experts under ERISA, and are therefore held to a high standard of care with respect to plan-related decisions regarding investments, service providers, plan administration, and general ERISA compliance issues.

A retirement plan adviser can serve in either a 3(21) or 3(38) fiduciary capacity, and in some cases, both capacities. The needs and desires of the plan sponsor typically dictate the specific arrangement, which is predicated upon the subject of risk mitigation versus risk avoidance. Some plan sponsors want assistance with their fiduciary responsibilities but want to maintain discretion and control of their plan’s investment menus. Others want to shift the fiduciary responsibilities to a third party due to their lack of expertise, and ultimately, fear of exposure to liability.
The new regulations under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), Section 408(b)(2), and ERISA, Section 404(a)(5) make significant changes to the required disclosures to be made to both plan sponsors and plan participants and require all plan service providers to furnish more information about their services, expenses and fees. The comparative chart below outlines the basics of these two regulations.
