CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY

At PFS, we fully recognize that conflicts of interest adversely affect the integrity of the private retirement system. At the least, the appearance of impropriety calls into question fiduciaries’ loyalty to participants. At worst, a conflict of interest can have a direct adverse impact on the Plan and its participants. For instance, a conflict of interest, gone unchecked, can result in the Plan paying more than reasonable compensation to service providers or result in fiduciaries offering mediocre and overly expensive investment options when superior products are available at equal or less expense costs. Conflicts of interest, therefore, can adversely affect the benefits available to participants at retirement; the exclusive purpose for which retirement Plans exist. PFS does not involve itself in self-dealing transactions and has policies and procedures to address self-dealing transactions by co-fiduciaries. We subscribe to and abide by the fundamental duty within the fiduciary standard of care, which is to manage delegated investment decisions for the exclusive benefit of the retirement Plan participant and their beneficiaries. We recognize that we have a responsibility to employ an objective, independent due diligence process at all times.

Within the Monitoring phase of our service delivery model, we continuously seek to (1) identify conflicts (or potential conflicts) that may impact the management of the Plan; (2) evaluate those conflicts and the impact they may have on the Plan and its participants; (3) determine whether the conflicts will adversely impact the Plan; (4) consider protections that would protect the Plan and participants from any potential adverse effect of the conflict (for instance, appointing an independent fiduciary to evaluate the investment or proposed service provider) and: (5) if the conflict adversely impacts the Plan and its participants, change service providers, investments or other circumstances related to the conflict.

PFS recognizes that although a conflict of interest may exist in connection with a proposed transaction, entering into the transaction may or may not be a breach of fiduciary duty — the determining factors are whether all fiduciaries prudently evaluated the conflict, and acted solely in the best interests of the participants and for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits. If a material adverse impact on the participants cannot be avoided or properly mitigated, entering into the transaction would not be prudent and would trigger a fiduciary breach.

Furthermore, if a conflict of interest is precluded under ERISA’s prohibited transaction rules, we will not, as a matter of law, allow the Plan to become a party to the transaction; even if the action were otherwise reasonable or profitable to the Plan. Absent an exemption, we recognize all fiduciaries are absolutely precluded from entering into a contemplated transaction if it meets the criteria of the prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA; even if doing so could otherwise be considered "prudent" and therefore satisfy ERISA.
