Alliance Bernstein & Eaton Vance 401k Performance and Fee Investigation

Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane is investigating Alliance Bernstein and Eaton Vance employee 401(k) accounts. Our initial investigation has uncovered that Alliance Bernstein and Eaton Vance have inserted substantial amounts of their own proprietary funds, allowing both of these companies to earn fees from their employees’ retirement savings. We believe that these actions were aimed at benefiting themselves to the detriment of their customers.

Alliance Bernstein & Eaton Vance

Many of the Alliance Bernstein proprietary funds and Eaton Vance proprietary funds offered in each of their employee 401(k) plans have underperformed and impose higher than average fees.  Meaning, Alliance Bernstein and Eaton Vance are potentially costing participants in their 401(k) plans thousands of dollars in lost retirement savings.  By including their own proprietary funds in their employees 401(k) accounts, Alliance Bernstein and Eaton Vance may be in violation of the regulations which forbid such arrangements under the “prohibited transactions” provisions of The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”).
