[Opinion]

Excerpt: Named fiduciaries, particularly those with little investment expertise, may wish to retain an experienced investment professional to whom they can delegate this authority. In addition, the plan's directed trustee may have negotiated agreements with providers like futures commission merchants, and may be willing to take direction from the investment manager to execute such agreements on behalf of the plan.Regardless of the approach selected, named fiduciaries ought to be aware that they may be subjecting themselves to potential liability when they execute ancillary documentation at the request of investment managers.
