Nationwide Financial Services Settles 13-Year-Old Revenue Sharing Suit
Dec 15 14
Nationwide Financial Services has filed a motion for preliminary approval of a settlement of a lawsuit filed by trustees of five qualified retirement plans alleging that the provider's revenue-sharing arrangement with mutual funds constituted transactions prohibited by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). In its motion, Nationwide says the settlement secures a number of significant changes to its business practices that will result in different investment options and enhanced disclosures for the plans and for future purchasers of Nationwide's annuity contracts and trust platform products. Nationwide will also pay $140,000,000 to the class identified in the lawsuit. The suit, Haddock v. Nationwide, alleges that Nationwide violated ERISA when it kept fees that it received from nonproprietary mutual funds that it offers through its defined contribution platform. Nationwide is the third-largest writer of 401(k) contracts in the nation. The lead plaintiff in the action is the deferred compensation plan of Flyte Tool & Die. The plaintiffs claim that the refunds of management fees that Nationwide received from nonproprietary mutual funds were plan assets that should have been returned to the plans. Furthermore, they allege that, in not revealing these kickbacks, Nationwide misrepresented the level of fees it was receiving. By retaining the fees and not disclosing them, the plaintiffs claim Nationwide violated ERISA's prohibited transaction and fiduciary duty rules. They say the provider purposefully chose to include outside mutual funds with high management fees in order to maximize the 'undisclosed kickbacks' it received. The plaintiffs are asking for a return of these fees along with damages plus all profits that Nationwide earned on them. In 2006, the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut denied Nationwide's motion to dismiss the case, saying a reasonable jury could find that Nationwide Financial Services Inc. and Nationwide Life Insurance Co. were plan fiduciaries under ERISA, and the trustees deserved a chance to present further evidence against the Nationwide companies. Nationwide argued it was not subject to ERISA's prohibited transaction rules because it was not a fiduciary to the plans and because the revenue-sharing payments were not plan assets.
