Fiduciary

(1) Indicates the relationship of trust and confidence where one person (the fiduciary) holds or controls property for the benefit of another person; (2) anyone who exercises power and control, management or disposition with regard to a fund’s assets, or who has authority to do so or who has authority or responsibility in the plan’s administration. Fiduciaries must discharge their duties solely in the interest of the participants and their beneficiaries, and are accountable for any actions that may be construed by the courts as breaching that trust.
