After 30 years in business with 150 years of combined experience, we’ve seen, heard and learned a great deal. Most notably are the burdens and responsibilities that retirement plan sponsors carry. It can be a perpetual load. Working with both companies and non-profit organizations, our licensed and credentialed advisors bring a defined process and ongoing commitment to reduce the load, while helping to maximize the value and benefit of the total program.
We are well versed in all the intricacies of plan design and operation, critical for a well-functioning Plan. From optimizing a match formula to strategies that may help plans stay under audit size, we dig deep to help clients design and maintain a plan that attracts and retains the best talent, while avoiding problems and minimizing cost.
Whether you are looking for a 3(21) co-fiduciary to share in plan investment liability or a “full” 3(38) investment fiduciary to assume that liability for you, we have the expertise and the processes to support your needs.
Our well-honed processes ensure all investments align with the IPS (Investment Policy Statement). Investments are thoroughly vetted using our proprietary scoring system. Utilizing an open-architecture platform gives us maximum fund choice, while enabling us to evaluate fund performance and costs against key benchmarks.
Your employees get to know us as people. We develop a relationship with them. Websites and 800 numbers may be fine for general questions, but our team stands ready to help any plan participant with their personal questions about their retirement. We answer their questions about fund selection and help them see what their retirement may look like.
Compliance issues are best combated by first having the right processes in place to avoid problems in the first place. That said, issues do arise and hiring an ERISA attorney is not always the best or only option. We’ve guided many clients through compliance issues. And if your plan requires a Large Plan audit, you are subject to a DOL or IRS audit, or you undergoing a Plan merger, we’ve been through all of them. We’re here to guide you and assist you with the various document requests throughout the process.
