Fee Analysis & Benchmarking

We support trustees in fulfilling their fiduciary review process by comparing plan/manager fees to ensure reasonableness.


Fees play an important role in overall portfolio considerations. Choosing between active and passive investment management strategies, hiring a reasonably priced manager within their given market capitalization, and ensuring recordkeeping or administrative fees are in line with industry-standard are just a few of the responsibilities taken on by the fiduciaries of the plan. DeMarche provides guidance on fee reviews and benchmarking for all plan types, protecting plan participants from paying unreasonable fees and subsequently bolstering the fiduciary review process on behalf of trustees.
