Company Retirement Plans
Employers want a plan that is easy to administer and helps them to attract and keep quality personnel. Employees look for growth of their retirement assets while minimizing exposure to risk.
Our support helps you and your employees focus on your core business, gives participants a single point of contact for your plan, and helps participants understand their retirement benefits.
Business Retirement Planning
HELPING YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYEES
We help businesses improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their retirement plans in the following ways:
Helping trustees create retirement plan investment options that give participants the best chance of reaching their retirement goals.
Acting as a fiduciary to ensure that your investment options are prudent, that plan fees are reasonable, and that participants are properly educated about your plan.
Providing ongoing participant education that emphasizes understanding of risk-return strategy relative to retirement goals.
Serving as the primary point of contact for your plan to help reduce many obligations associated with plan administration.
Retirement plans offer tax benefits to businesses — employer contributions to the plan can be tax-deductible, plan assets can grow tax-deferred, and available tax credits can mitigate costs. Additionally, company retirement plans can help businesses to attract and retain quality employees,
saving you money.
We use a structured financial planning process to bring clarity, confidence, and financial peace of mind to trustees and plan participants. This planning process concentrates on three questions:
- Where is your plan today? – To pinpoint any needed adjustments, we analyze the current risk profile of your plan, the level of participant satisfaction, fees, and the efficiency of your plan.
- Where do you hope to go? – Reviewing your goals: We’ll help optimize your plan so that it aligns with the needs and goals of your company and its culture.
- What will it take to get there? – We will outline the steps necessary to help you attain your plan goals. If a change in service providers is necessary, we will help you to make a smooth transition and implement the new plan structure.
Our retirement department prides itself on our unmatched trustee education and support services. We strive to take every opportunity to take as much off the plate of the plan trustees as possible and provide knowledge and guidance to streamline the operations of the plan.
We believe that educated investors will achieve better investment results by making informed decisions. Understanding the benefits of contributing to a plan and the anticipated expenses investors will face in retirement often leads to a greater level of participation and higher contribution amounts.
