Great things happen when we work together
Anyone who works to help people achieve the future they want is a friend to us. At the top of our list are professional advisors who go the extra mile to help their clients succeed. For nearly 20 years, we’ve proudly partnered with advisors nationwide to offer greater customization, innovation and trust. These are just some of the advantages available to you.
1. 3(38) fiduciary responsibility at the participant level
We go beyond the industry standard to accept fiduciary liability for the participant as well as share fiduciary liability at a plan level. That helps you better focus on the fiduciary responsibilities core to plan and client success, while easing the compliance and regulatory burden so you have more time to grow your business.
2. Faster participant education
Through our highly personalized approach, participants more easily learn the importance of saving for their future, how much they need to contribute, and how the choices they make today will affect their retirement outcome. All of which helps them better understand the key benefits of their plan, and become more invested in achieving long term success.
3. Total customization without sacrificing control
Unlike other partners, we never mandate a specific investment strategy or fund options. Thanks to our open architecture, everything we do is customized to the strategy and options you select for your client. We can even take your existing line up and create a custom TDF. It’s all about keeping you in control, and ensuring you have the support to better educate and serve sponsors as well as the employees under their care.
4. Increased participant and contribution rates
A combination of factors make us unique in how we help to attract and grow participant relationships. Our proven methodology favors less risk over more reward, which is what a majority of participants prefer. Through our goals-based approach, employees will know exactly what it will take to achieve the future they want, which further increases satisfaction and contribution levels. And when markets become uncertain, participants remain confident thanks to our multiple risk guards and personalized advice.
