Investment Management with ADP
Make the most of your business’ retirement plan.

With ADP Strategic Plan Services (SPS), you can rely on us to provide investment services that are designed to fit the needs of your plan and mitigate your risks involved with fiduciary obligations to offering a diversified fund menu.

ADP Strategic Plan Services can help ease the fiduciary burden of selecting and monitoring your plan’s investment lineup.

Protection from Fiduciary Risk

When it comes to selecting plan investment options, you have a legal responsibility to follow the fiduciary standards outlined in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This is a high standard that requires certain levels of expertise in areas like investment selection and monitoring, among others.

Hiring SPS as your investment manager also reduces the risks associated with certain third-party, ERISA-related lawsuits pertaining to investment selection and monitoring. In FY ‘18, the EBSA recovered $1.6 billion for the benefit of plans, participants, and beneficiaries.1 This included:

$807.7 million
from over 1,329
civil investigations1

$443.2 million from
resolving informal
participant complaints1
