Pension and 401K Advisors

401k advisors need to know and do many things. Due diligence. Meaningful diversification. Regulatory knowledge. Attention to detail. Our expertise and established process combine best practices with behavioral financial research. The end result is to maximize your portfolio’s returns and improve your experience.

Because every plan has different requirements for participants and fiduciaries, we begin every engagement by assessing the plan’s features and services and the client’s primary objectives. This allows us to:

  • Manage expenses while maintaining a high level of service and fund selection
  • Increase employee education through individualized meetings and targeted communications
  • Optimize performance by implementing established fiduciary processes
  • Customize plan provisions to align with business objectives and workforce demographics
  • Be the best 401k advisors for your return and your personal experience

Fiduciary Quality Management Process

Adhering to the established process for plan management improves your experience. These four core practices were established by The Centre for Fiduciary Excellence and validated by legislation, case law, or best practices.

Define, document, and acknowledge the roles and responsibilities of all involved parties, including fiduciaries and non-fiduciaries.

Services include:

  • Plan design review and recommendation
  • Fiduciary processes evaluation
  • Plan benchmarking
  • Fee analysis
  • Participant “retirement readiness” and education
  • Vendor support and service models
  • Industry/peer group benefit competitiveness

Create an investment policy statement (IPS). This statement contains the details for defining, implementing, and managing a specific investment strategy. Establish plan objectives and set monitoring frequency.

Services include:

  • Customized investment policy statements
  • Investment selection and monitoring
  • Service provider liaison

Periodically compare investment performance against the appropriate index, peer group, and IPS objective. Regularly compare plan service providers to alternative options to maintain cost-efficiency, service, performance, and investment flexibility.
