For Participants

We pride ourselves on providing practical and meaningful tools designed to elicit better outcomes for you as a participant in your organization’s retirement plan. When investors fail to plan, their plan may fail. Pathlight Advisors believes a retirement plan is successful when it promotes the retirement readiness of participants it serves.

Fiduciary

As the plan sponsor of your qualified retirement benefit you are a fiduciary. According to the Department of Labor, plan sponsors are required to have a “prudent expert” responsible for their retirement plan. Our team will help you reduce your fiduciary liability by providing regular reviews, benchmarking and updates regarding public policy and industry litigation.
