Retirement Plan Consulting
You have a vested interest in helping your people understand financial matters. We choose to invest in your journey because we see an opportunity to partner with awesome organizations and make a difference in people’s lives.
Certain individuals in your organization have personal liability for the assets in your employer-sponsored retirement plan and, therefore, must understand their fiduciary responsibilities and the necessary tasks to fulfill them. We help plan sponsors navigate their fiduciary requirements and complete the appropriate action steps for compliance, allowing your organization to protect individuals that have fiduciary exposure.
Selecting and monitoring the plan’s investment options is not only a serious fiduciary task, but it can greatly impact your participants’ outcome. Assuming fiduciary liability either as a 3(38) Investment Manager or 3(21) co-fiduciary advisor, we’ll work with your retirement plan committee to identify and monitor investment options that may be suitable for your participants and allow them to control their risk while increasing the likelihood of achieving their retirement goals.
You can be confident working with us because as an independent, fee-only advisor, we are able to provide an unbiased approach to service provider benchmarking and analysis. Unlike vendors who are incented to sell a certain product, our only incentive is to put our plan sponsors in a position to make more informed decisions. We have the experience and tools to confirm your plan’s service providers are delivering the highest quality products and services at the most competitive total plan cost; directly affecting plan participants by lowering fees and/or enhancing services.
Constructing an appropriately designed plan gives your organization the ability to impact results without forcing behaviors. We work with plan sponsors to develop a plan design that meets your organization’s unique objectives while also maintaining DOL and IRS regulatory requirements. Our team stays current with industry standards and provides guidance to help ensure your organization will have competitive benefits compared to your peers.
Your employer-sponsored retirement plan is a great tool that allows you to reward tenure, provide your employees with free money and incentivize good behaviors. For many, it will likely become their biggest savings asset. However, we realize that merely providing a tool and educating your employees about the existence of the benefit is not enough. Our Breakroom experience goes beyond the traditional 401(k) / 403(b) “investment-only” speak and coaches your employees toward identifying and implementing appropriate financial behaviors.
