What is the Independent Assessment Report?

We are pleased to announce a new way for plan sponsors, investment committee members and individual investors to obtain reports on their advisors and service providers.

This report, exclusively from CEFEX:

  • offers a unique method to document the selection and monitoring of your service providers
  • summarizes an independent expert analysis
  • assurance that an advisor or service provider has been asked the difficult questions required to demonstrate excellence and prudence
THE FIRST PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE REPORT OF ITS KIND

The CEFEX assessment described in the IAR, is based on the standard described in the handbook: “Prudent Practices for Investment Advisors” , published by Fi360 Inc. In the case of recordkeepers and Third Party Administrators, it is based on the Standard for Retirement Plan Service Providers published by CEFEX and ASPPA.

Hiring a CEFEX certified firm helps plan fiduciaries fulfill their fiduciary obligations and the downloadable IAR provides a permanent record of the most recent annual assessment.
Download your service provider’s IAR today and store it in your fiduciary file.
