GCT ATTORNEY FEATURED IN ARTICLE ON THE USE OF PARTICIPANT DATA FOR PROVIDER MARKETING

In the summer issue of NAPA Net the Magazine, GCT’s Andrew Williams weighs in on the use of participant data for provider marketing. The article explores the risks to plan fiduciaries of investment advisors that use personal information of participants to market non-plan products, such as life insurance.

Is employee information generated in administering a 401(k) plan an asset of the plan that a fiduciary cannot use to promote its own business? Several recent lawsuits discussed in the article have brought focus to this potential legal risk.
