We help plan sponsors manage fiduciary risk, attract and retain employees and help those employees achieve the best possible retirement outcomes.
As a plan sponsor, you aim to manage your fiduciary obligations while also helping your plan participants effectively prepare for retirement. Yet constant legal and regulatory changes, combined with shrinking HR departments, industry consolidation, market volatility, and low savings rates, makes this one of the most difficult times in history to achieve that goal. Mesirow Financial can help.
