We serve as the fiduciary on tailored portfolios with a focus on low-cost investment options. To round out your plan, we assess your need for insurance and provide suitable options.

“Reasonableness” of Expenses
I contract with an outside vendor to provide annual comparisons of plan expenses to appropriate peer groups. The reports are comprehensive and include TPA fees, record keeper fees, advisor fees, money manager fees, investment manager fees, and calculate total plan cost.

We provide employees with materials that help them to understand the investment options available through their 401K or pension plan and to choose the best for their situation.
