Work with plan sponsors and administrator to ensure the plan is designed to optimally accomplish goals.
Sign on as an ERISA 3(38) Fiduciary legally obligating us to do what is in the best interest of the plan, while simultaneously reducing liability for the plan sponsor.
Focus on what we can control:
Ignore past performance, financial media, latest fads, and focus on what will increase chances of success for participants (disciplined investment strategy, asset allocation, diversification, costs, education, etc.)
Create simple plans with the ability to accomplish goals of novice investors without intimidating them, yet still have the horsepower and flexibility to meet the needs of more experienced participants.
Participant behavior is the single largest factor in future success. We educate employees about their options and how to design a plan to accomplish their most important goals.
Having a Fee-Only approach means we get paid by the plan for our services. We have no financial relationships with platform providers, third party administrators, or mutual fund companies. This approach reduces conflicts of interest and gives our clients comfort that our advice is in their best interest.
