Retirement Plans Likely Paying Excessive Compensation to Service Providers

I have identified this list of over 400 retirement plans throughout the Chicago area that are likely paying excessive compensation out of plan assets.  I say likely rather than definitely because something may have changed since the most recent 5500 form was filed, and I do not know the specific level of services being provided.  However, being an independent registered investment advisor specializing in providing advice with respect to group retirement plans and having reviewed over ten thousand 5500 forms over the past decade, I have become sufficiently familiar with the marketplace to determine what constitutes reasonable provider compensation for a full range of service levels.  Consequently, I can confidently say that many of these plans are still paying excessive compensation even if they are receiving high levels of service because there often still isn’t enough work to do to justify these compensation levels.
