About Us


With a nearly exclusive focus on working with Defined Contribution (“DC”) retirement plan sponsors, Gosselin Consulting

Group seeks to mitigate fiduciary liability exposure for our clients. We believe this will lead to improved plan participation

and engagement resulting in better participant retirement outcomes and overall retirement readiness. We pride ourselves

on providing each unique client with fully customized and proactive forward-thinking advice backed by comprehensive research, prudent process, sound reasoning, and extensive documentation. 

100% Independent

& Employee-owned

DC Experience

Excellent Client Retention Since Firm Inception


As an advocate and direct extension of our clients’ retirement committees, Gosselin Consulting Group is dedicated to addressing the unique needs of (and challenges faced by) DC retirement plan sponsors. To best align our interests with those of our clients, we serve as an acknowledged and documented ERISA 3(21) or 3(38) fiduciary. We’re known as a “boutique” consulting firm, offering the full service typical of much larger organizations but with the benefits of a small firm approach and cost structure.  We collaborate with each client and create a customized approach tailored to their plan’s demographics.

Asset class structure is of equal importance to manager selection when constructing an investment menu

Managers who invest in higher quality securities (vs benchmark) can mitigate downside performance risk and outperform (long-term) at lower risk (long-term)

Solving for the many DC fiduciary investment risks helps reduce the probability of participant account impairment and mitigate fiduciary liability

Quality Matters

Choosing equity investment options for use in a Defined Contribution plan is not just about selecting the best manager in each of the plan’s asset classes - there are many competitive managers in most investment categories, yet some may not be suitable or appropriate for use in a DC plan. We believe a deciding factor behind the selection decision should be based on the quality of a portfolio’s underlying holdings.

Focus on Fees

At Gosselin Consulting Group,

we believe an equitably distributed direct per participant fee (by use of a fixed dollar per head cost rather than percentage or basis points) is the most appropriate plan financing strategy for most plan sponsors. This approach:

  • fairly allocates recordkeeping costs across all participants

  • minimizes or eliminates participant subsidization

  • provides participants with full plan administration fee transparency

Understanding ERISA 404(a)

The Employee Retirement

Income Security Act of 1974

requires that a Defined

Contribution plan identify one or

more named fiduciaries in the

plan document. In addition to the

named fiduciary(s), a person may

also be considered a fiduciary

based on their conduct and

authority over the plan. It’s

critical to know if you are a

fiduciary and understanding your

responsibilities are key to

reducing risk.
