Retirement Solutions

3(38) Investment Management Services

In today’s rapidly changing regulatory environment, effectively managing a retirement plan can be a formidable task for fiduciaries. Plan Sponsors have a duty to act prudently in all areas of a retirement plan—from the evaluation, selection and monitoring of service providers to day-to-day plan administration. One of the most difficult tasks for a plan sponsor is choosing and managing the investment options offered to participants. Many plan sponsors recognize they don’t have the time or expertise to fulfill their fiduciary role, and seek support from experienced investment professionals.

As a 3(38) investment manager, Meeder manages all aspects of fund selection and monitoring. Our services include:

  • Investment Policy Statement outlining the investment management process
  • Initial core fund line-up, providing:
    • A broad range of asset classes
    • Active and passive investments
    • Target-Date Funds
    • Managed Account Portfolios
  • Ongoing fund monitoring
  • Quarterly monitoring reports
  • Facilitation of fund replacements when deemed prudent
  • Advanced notice to plan sponsor of recommended fund changes
