Our Retirement Plan Process
Majors & Mondragon implements the award winning Self-Assessment of Fiduciary Excellence—a four step process that repeats itself perpetually—to streamline our engagements with all our clients. The SAFE Process is consistent with our Firm’s client centric methodology and the four pillars of the Fiduciary Standard: Principles, Process, Prudence, and Consistency. Below is what an engagement would look like while collaborating with Majors & Mondragon:
In this stage of the SAFE Fiduciary process, the roles and responsibilities of all involved parties are clearly defined and documented. In addition, the service agreement is drafted contracting and allowing Majors & Mondragon to commence going to work on the plan sponsor’s behalf to make the retirement plan more effective and efficient. Record Keepers and TPAs alike are screened and interviewed to compile only the finest assembly for the plan.
This stage of the process is reserved for identifying an appropriate plan design for the corporate retirement plan and identifying the investment offering for the plan as well. In addition, the governing documents are drafted during this stage as well. It is during the drafting of the governing documents where we uncover the plan sponsor’s goals, the important provisions that must be stated within the plan including loan provisions and safe harbors, along with a multitude of additional details that is to be documented.
During this stage of the process, the corporate retirement plan is officially created. We work extensively with the plan sponsor to ensure that the plan establishment is executed seamlessly and smoothly. Also, employee education takes place during this stage of the process. The employee education takes place in the form of live, on-sight enrollment meetings with each individual illegible employee.
Periodic reports which are made of qualitative and quantitative analysis are generated that compare investment performance against appropriate index, peer group, and investment policy statement objectives. Further analysis is presented on employee participation as it pertains to deferrals and contribution influx, plan growth, and compliance testing, amongst other components of plan governance. To that effect, the plan’s overall health including record keeping fees and TPA fees are benchmarked against those of its peers to ensure that the plan is besting industry standards.
