Plan Sponsors

Our clients tell us they engage with us primarily for two reasons:

They express concern over the Corporate and Personal Liability in their role as Fiduciaries of their employees’ retirement assets. The risk has been illustrated time and time again through increased litigation encompassing many retirement plan sponsors.

Pragmatically, it is in their best interests for their employees to be able to enjoy a financially secure retirement at a normal retirement age. Any delay in retirement by their employees carries an additional financial burden in terms of higher wages, increased healthcare and disability premium costs.

Our services and processes are designed to address both of these concerns for all of our current and future clients.


  • Fiduciary Liability Management    
  • Investment Selection and Monitoring 
  • Plan Design Strategies
  • Retirement Plan Management and Governance   
  • Recordkeeper Selection/RFP Management
  • Plan Expense Oversight and Management 
  • Employee Education and Engagement
