#7. 401(k) fees — what you should know
401(k) fees should be an important consideration for both 401(k) plan providers and their participants. Employees who participate in 401(k) plans can be greatly impacted by the fees and expenses of their investments. As contributions and earnings on investments increase your employees’ retirement savings, associated fees and expenses can reduce them substantially.
Unlike the high 401(k) fees traditional mutual funds charge their investors, we use some of the lowest-cost index mutual funds in our managed accounts. This greatly reduces 401(k) fees and translates into cost savings for both retirement plan sponsors and their participants.
