An Online Learning Community For ERISA Fiduciaries

Expert Instruction

Created by Greenspring Advisors, a leading retirement plan advisory firm and the 2018 PLANSPONSOR Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year.

Rapid Learning

In just about every endeavor, lack of knowledge and training almost always leads to sub-optimal outcomes and poor performance. With Fiduciary U™, you get smart, fast.

Risk Management

ERISA litigation is increasing and the DOL views regular fiduciary education as a critical component of a good governance process to demonstrate prudence.


Self-Paced & Convenient

If you learn at a fast pace you can develop competency quickly. If you learn at a slower pace you can absorb the information without being pushed ahead too quickly. With 24/7 access, you can complete courses whenever it works best for you. Are you an early riser? Study in the morning. Unpredictable hours? Weave in the training around your other priorities.

Continuing Education

Courses provide CE credit for a number of designations, certifications and licenses from organizations like the HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®), the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc.


Fiduciary U™ is a cost-effective and valuable investment for your company and your committee members, especially when compared to the potential cost of a settlement agreement with the DOL or an ERISA lawsuit. And our Company Subscriptions are perfect for training your entire retirement plan committee and plan support staff.

Featured Courses


Created in consultation with Fred Reish from Drinker Biddle, this course is designed to help retirement plan fiduciaries have a full understanding of what it means to be an ERISA fiduciary and to become better prepared to face their duties and manage both the corporate and personal liability that has arisen due to increased scrutiny from the Department of Labor and the rapidly growing number of 401(k) and 403(b) lawsuits in the marketplace.


This course provides an in-depth look at behavioral finance concepts, social science and investment research as well as fiduciary trends and best practices for why plans should adopt automatic plan design features in order to drive successful retirement outcomes for employees.


This course discusses the importance of a properly designed and well-constructed investment policy statement (IPS) as a tool to help ERISA fiduciaries demonstrate that a prudent process has been followed when selecting and monitoring plan investments. The course also reviews best practices that can help ensure the IPS is creating less fiduciary risk, rather than additional risk.
