Retirement Plans

Welcome Retirement Plan Sponsors and Advisors

Sponsoring a 401(k) plan is not an easy task, but rather a time-consuming endeavor requiring filing of documents, monitoring the plan, and holding an annual employee meeting. Sponsoring a 401(k) Plan creates legal responsibilities and unlimited personal liability on you, the Plan Sponsor. As such, you should take great care in choosing your service provider partners that work with you to design a 401(k) Plan that covers your ERISA fiduciary responsibilities, serves your employee retirement savings needs, and maintains investment selections that appropriately address the Plan goals.

Our firm specializes in serving retirement plans that are less than $10 million or under 100 employees. We custom tailor a 401(k) plan to fit the needs of your employees and your ERISA obligations. For employers, we serve your Plan in a fiduciary capacity that we provide to you in writing, as required under ERISA.

We work with you in an open-architecture format, which provides for the ability to select from various providers for each of the important services to your plan- administration, record keeping, investments, etc., allowing for best of breed providers and managers.

To maintain our independence, any investment selections that we recommend for your plan are “revenue neutral” to our firm. We are only paid an advisory fee and do not accept or receive any outside revenue or participate in revenue sharing arrangements. That is, if you select an ETF Model or Collective Investment Fund managed by our affiliate, our firm does not receive any additional revenue.

We invite you to contact us at 920-785-6010 for a no-obligation plan review, or to include us in your next RFP process. We look forward to our conversation.
