Ask TD, they’ll tell you who you can use. Mesirow, TreeHouse, Morningstar, Wilshire, etc. If you take on 3(21)/3(38) yourself, additional liability and responsibilities. Not worth the added cost for you to be in unless you have deep pockets behind you. If you are the 3(38), you’re on the hook for everything if the investments are fund to be unsuitable. Don’t think it can happen (as it hardly does), check with LBro’s and their bond fund exposure to sub-prime...

Which platform are you using? I would recommend going 3(21) if it’s your first. Widdle the list from the 3(21) approved list down to a TDF option and about 10-20 other options. This will keep the client engaged and give you and opportunity to help them understand. 3(38) can be excessive: you tell them what the options without input from the client, costs more than the 3(21) and there is additional required documentation to support your recommendations.

Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.
