Let’s begin at the end

Get it down in writing
Every effective retirement plan should have a written investment policy statement. An investment policy outlines and prescribes a prudent and acceptable investment philosophy and sets out the investment management procedures and long-term goals for the investor. A written investment policy allows retirement plan fiduciaries to clearly establish the prudence and diversification standards that they want the investment process to maintain. Plan sponsors should develop a written policy as the net effect increases the likelihood that the plan will be able to meet the financial needs of the plan participants. Thomas Doll works with you and creates a clear, concise, informative written policy statement.
