Our advisors utilize their experience and expertise and that of their colleagues to develop the best solutions for your complex personal and professional financial situations.
Actionable planning strategies to inform and guide your decision-making.
Comprehensive advice for whatever stage your plan is at—active, frozen, or terminating
You face a myriad of challenges as the administrator of your company’s defined benefit plan— funding liabilities, shifting regulations, escalating costs, and longer life expectancies, just to name a few. Addressing these challenges is essential for minimizing the impact on your company’s financials.
Our retirement plan advisors understand the intricacies of managing active, frozen, and terminating plans, and work closely with you to develop a course of action to mitigate risk, reduce costs, and drive better results.
Increased Fiduciary Protection
We can serve as your Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO), 3(21) co-fiduciary, or 3(38) fiduciary investment manager, assuming some or all of the responsibility for selecting and monitoring your plan’s investments. We’ll help you determine which level of delegation is right for you based on your plan committee’s investment knowledge, preferred involvement, and risk exposure.
Streamlined Execution and Coordination
Our finance, HR, and benefits teams have many responsibilities as they take care of the company and its employees. We coordinate and help execute all the investment and administrative tasks related to your defined benefit plan—giving them more time for their other priorities.
Between the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) premiums, investment fees, and third-party vendors, the cost to maintain your defined benefit plan can quickly add up. We analyze your current fee structure to identify cost-saving opportunities without sacrificing value. These cost reductions can decrease the time it takes to fully fund or terminate your plan, potentially saving years in plan administration.
We work with open, closed, and frozen pension plans of all sizes and complexity. Even if your plan is fully funded and on its way to being terminated, there are many chances for missteps that can cost time and money, if you don’t understand all your options.Steve Malbasa, Partner
