Pension Plan Governance Model
Pension Plan Governance starts with a process of defined expectations within a framework of process, evaluation, and performance monitoring. The purpose of pension plan governance is to employ best practices and forward thinking to meet the fiduciary expectations of all plan stakeholders (plan members, corporation, and shareholders) and to continuously review current practices to continuously evolve a better program.
Success without governance is often called “chance” and unquestionably, “chance” is not a successful business model element. Proteus provides a structured and customized ongoing governance support structure so your organization and your employees can get the most out of your retirement income program – better understanding, better value, and better results.
