Fixed Rate Product Fees
NAVIGATING COST CONSIDERATIONS
When comparing total plan fees of service providers, it’s
important to know how fixed rate or guaranteed interest
options may impact the evaluation.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
UNDERSTANDING
RETIREMENT PLAN COSTS
Guaranteed interest options do not have expense ratios,
however there are expense assumptions underlying the
calculation of each guarantee and this may include amounts
that are paid as revenue sharing to the service provider, and
applied to pay for recordkeeping and administrative services.
REVIEWING PLAN SERVICES
Many service providers will provide a total cost analysis that
includes a calculation of the “weighted total investment expense”
for the plan. This calculation takes into account the amount of
plan assets that are invested in each investment option.

The guaranteed interest investment expenses may or may not be
disclosed as part of the weighted total investment expense and
total cost analysis, depending on the practices of the service
provider. A provider may show a fee for the guaranteed interest
option in a separate section of the fee illustration. There is
generally no standard or consistent approach among service
providers in how or if the fees are disclosed.
Below are examples of a guaranteed interest option
with the disclosure in the total investment expense
column and one without the disclosure in the total
investment expense column.
EXAMPLE 1
Illustrates the total investment expense of the guaranteed
interest option and how this impacts the weighted
average investment expense for the plan and the plan’s
total cost analysis.
