  • Since you’re a member of the Coach program I believe you are comfortable discussing these tools. As Charlie would tell you we also have examples of all the tools discussed here in the event we hit a hot button we can go there. For example we may get into the fiduciary shield issue and discuss RPAG’s 10 step process in evaluating funds and how it lines up with the investment policy. Participant meetings/education also get’s more attention than one would suspect. Don’t assume current provider/advisor is doing anything here.
