Retirement Plan Fiduciary

At the Gleason Group, we offer two types of fiduciary services for retirement plans not provided by brokers: 3(21) and 3(38). These refer to specific sections of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974.

As a 3(21) investment adviser we are in a co-fiduciary role, whereby we provide advice to an employer with respect to funds on a 401(k) investment menu, and the employer retains the discretion to accept or reject our advice.

As a 3(38) adviser, we have the discretion to make fund decisions. The plan sponsor has less liability in this relationship, because they offload fiduciary risk for investments to us; however, employers still carry a fiduciary duty to monitor the us as the adviser on the plan. Learn more about our fiduciary duty below.
