EMPLOYEE 401(K) PLANS
Your organization’s 401(k) plan is an extremely important piece of your overall employee benefits package. Changes in the 401(k) marketplace have brought about a greater need for plan oversight, monitoring, and overall compliance on for employer. Our goal for plans, both big and small, is to improve the cost-effectiveness and improve overall participation.
Plan Design & Administration
We will review your current plan and give a breakdown of its abilities across all areas. For example, does your plan help drive participation among employees? Does your current plan offer a sufficient amount of funds to allow your employees to diversify properly? Are there areas in the technology that can be upgraded, including reporting, and compliance?
Investment Selection & Monitoring
As independent advisors, we have access to a wide arrange of funds and investment options. We select funds based on two main criteria: performance and cost-effectiveness. To complement the initial recommendation of funds that we feel are best suited to meet the needs of your plan, we provide ongoing monitoring of their success in meeting plan needs.
Employee Education & Consulting
As a component of your plan, we provide on-site education programs for your employee’s meetings on a bi-annual basis. These meetings (which are typically scheduled in tandem with a general staff meeting or other business function) are important in regards to meeting the plan’s obligations to educate and inform participants. We cover various topics to encourage participation, financial planning, and the ideology of a long-term investment approach. We have discovered that group meetings are a vital way of building momentum towards supporting participation and full buy-in from your team.
