As a plan fiduciary, you are required to diversify plan investments to minimize the risk of large investment losses (unless it is imprudent to do so) and to be prudent in selecting and monitoring the plan’s menu of investment options. TIAA supports you and any advisor you may be working with in providing education to help you establish appropriate processes and documentation to fulfill your fiduciary obligations and help your employees effectively save for their retirements.
