Due to the growing seriousness of the Covid-19, and concern for our attendees, the WP&BC Orange County Chapter Board of Directors has decided that the April 16th Breakfast Forum will be provided via a webinar. 

All participants will receive their requested Continuing Education certificates once the webinar is completed.

The Presentation:

Plan Fiduciaries are obligated under ERISA to act solely in the interest of plan participants and their beneficiaries. Two of the most important and impactful roles of a Plan Fiduciary are the selection and monitoring of investment options and avoiding unnecessary expenses. While Plan Fiduciaries do not have control over market volatility and investment returns, they can take control of their Plan’s investment expenses, through proper selection of share classes so investment returns are not reduced unnecessarily by avoidable fees.

Our panel will discuss:

*Differences between Mutual Funds and Collective Investment Trusts (CITs)

*Factors to consider in evaluating investment option share classes

*Fiduciary concerns when selecting investment option share classes

The Panelists:

Shannon Main, CFP, AIF - Managing Director, Pensionmark -
