Working With You

Working With You

As a business owner, are you satisfied with your 401(k) plan? Are you interested in a more cost-effective plan? Call or email us to learn more about how we work with business owners to make the right investment decisions for your plan. We are committed to a process that allows plan fiduciaries to achieve optimal results and positive participant outcomes.  Our process begins with an open architecture approach to both investment managers and service providers. This approach allows us to service our clients without proprietary restrictions and conflicts of interest as we strive to deliver best in class solutions.

Whether you use us as a co-fiduciary on your investment due diligence under a 3(21) arrangement or chose to completely delegate the management of the investment menu under 3(38), we have the ability to customize an approach unique to your needs.
