Strong fiduciary care beyond expectations

GuidedChoice goes beyond the industry standard to offer a full range of 3(21) and 3(38) fiduciary services. Whether you’re a plan sponsor, financial advisor, or employer in need of a trusted fiduciary partner, we can save you valuable time by ensuring all ERISA fiduciary standards are met, while helping you better support plan and participants alike.

The benefits of a complete fiduciary expert

GuidedChoice is unique in that we can act as a 3(38) as well as 3(21) fiduciary for defined contribution plans. Both offer indemnification for plan sponsors, advisors and our business partners for losses incurred from a breach of GuidedChoice’s fiduciary duty, and the option to use our Managed Solutions as a QDIA and way to meet 404(c) requirements. Individual advantages include:

3(21) Fiduciary Services

  • Investment strategy and fund recommendations for the plan
  • Fund replacement suggestions
  • Continued monitoring and replacement
  • You maintain control of all plan decisions

3(38) Fiduciary Services

  • Assumption of fiduciary liability at a participant level
  • Full responsibility for selecting investment options for the plan, fully customized to your investment strategy and based on a rigorous process
  • Full responsibility of the monitoring and review process by our investment team, with the ability to add and remove funds and create watchlists that are closely monitored
  • Issuing of quarterly fiduciary reports from our investment committee

Our investment team follows a rigorous internal process to ensure you have the highest quality funds to serve a diverse employee base — strictly based on your investment strategy and preferred universe of funds.

All options are thoroughly researched to ensure they meet our exceptional standards, including a full analysis of the underlying funds, so your portfolio is never overweighted with an asset class already accounted for, or underweighted by missing an important asset class. We also help you better manage risk and maximize return by using diversified portfolios across a comprehensive set of asset classes.
