The very definition of flexibility, our open architecture option provides access to over 13,000 nonproprietary investment options from 160 leading investment managers. Review, compare, evaluate and bring your clients the right investment options for consideration.

If you choose our Screened Investment Tiers, you can add investment fiduciary services to help you and your client manage fiduciary risk associated with investment selection.
ADP makes investment fiduciary services available through Mesirow Financial.3 These services can help advisors manage fiduciary risk associated with investment selection and monitoring under Section 3(21) and 3(38) of ERISA.4
With either service, Mesirow Financial will act as a registered investment advisor and provide your plan with legal protection and defense against certain third-party, ERISA-related lawsuits regarding the selection and monitoring of investment options.
This approach provides guidance in selecting investment options from a broad menu of prescreened investment choices.
With this service, Mesirow Financial assumes full investment discretion for selecting, monitoring and, if necessary, replacing investment options for your client.
