Serving as a Fiduciary to a Retirement Plan requires care, skill, prudence, and diligence. It requires a level of knowledge in investment matters. ERISA requires fiduciaries to act solely in the interests of participants and for the exclusive purpose of providing participants with retirement benefits. ERISA holds Fiduciaries to a high standard in managing their plan’s investment options. As one court has said, and many have repeated: “The Fiduciary obligations to the participants and beneficiaries of the plan are…the highest known to the law”.
Plan Fiduciaries that are not qualified to fulfill their duties as an expert in all types of investments, seek for a qualified independent expert that acknowledge that they are fiduciaries to the plan; subject to the same duties under ERISA as the general plan fiduciaries. Plan Fiduciaries hire Soltis Investment Advisors and shift responsibility to them as an Expert Fiduciary under ERISA Section 3(21) and ERISA Section 3(38).
ERISA Handbook: “It is extremely important for all plan fiduciaries to understand their responsibilities and the potential penalties for shirking their responsibilities under ERISA. A Fiduciary can be held personally liable for breach or violation of these responsibilities, even to the extent of having to restore lost profits to the plan”.
