Under federal law, the University must exercise fiduciary oversight of the retirement plan’s investments. This includes selecting and monitoring funds that are available to plan participants. The Retirement Plan Investment Committee is the designated plan fiduciary acting on behalf of the University. The Committee is assisted by the Multnomah Group investment advisory firm – a co-fiduciary of the plan. The Committee also receives professional advice from time-to-time from at large members with demonstrated professional expertise related to finance and investments.
