FAQ

Would it be permissible for the advisor (CSP) to make a presentation to the plan sponsor on the results of the report?
Answer: Yes, definitely. This is a key role that an advisor can play.
Whether the advisor is a party to the plan or just prospecting the plan can the advisor receive a copy of the report?
Would it be permissible for the advisor to pay for the report either as a covered service provider or just as a competing advisor?
Several advisors have asked if they can pay for the Dalbar analysis. If they are already a party to the plan I would imagine that that might be a conflict of interest. But if they are prospecting the plan and are not a party to the plan at this point in time and they are not involved in the collection of the data or the creation of the report is it a conflict?
