Core Differentiators

(k)lean™ Analysis

We know that managing the retirement plan is often only one of the many hats administrators have to wear as part of their jobs. We designed our (k)lean™ Analysis program to bolster our clients’ fiduciary posture and uncover potential compliance issues.

Fee (k)ompression™

Are you concerned that your retirement plan fees are higher than they should be? Are your plan fees competitive against industry peers? Are the funds in your plan revenue neutral? Our team can help answer all of these questions by using our Fee (k)ompression™ program to make sure your plan has a competitive and level fee structure in place.

Investment Reviews

Our team conducts quarterly Investment Reviews for all of our clients, following a documented process detailed by the plan’s Investment policy Statement. As members of Retirement Plan Advisory Group, RPAG, we have access to tools and resources to help establish and document the plan’s investment process.

Participant Education

We believe that every participant should feel confident in their plan for retirement, and we provide the tools and resources for them to get there. Our customized participant education experience is based on participants. We happily provide virtual or in person education sessions, group meetings, and/or recorded presentations deliverable via email. We understand that every employee population is different, and we want to help you help them reach a successful retirement!

Mergers & Acquisition Consulting

Mergers and acquisitions usually occur in a fast-paced, time-sensitive environment. Having an experienced team on your side that understands the intricacies of working with qualified plans throughout the entire M&A cycle is critical to reducing your liability as a plan sponsor. Our team routinely operates in the M&A environment and boasts decades of experience in consulting with our retirement plan sponsor clients as they consider all varieties of transaction activities.

It would be our pleasure to serve your company with respect to your retirement plans and mergers and acquisitions needs.
