Plans With PurposeMore than just a slogan

We help employers manage great retirement plans. A great retirement plan can help you recruit and retain talent, and it may even boost productivity. It’s a plan deliberately managed to be both efficient and effective. It’s a plan designed to engage all your employees so that they will have a better future, and you may be less impacted by discrimination testing issues. It’s a plan that is thoughtfully designed, based upon the specific circumstances present in your workplace. Great plans are managed with purpose – the right features, the right investment options, the right employee education, the right platform, the right advice, and a tight compliance process – all at the right cost. It’s a valued benefit delivered at good value. We have managed plans with purpose for many years.


The Retire With More® Process

This is a system of fiduciary best practices designed to promote better retirement outcomes for employees, while managing employer costs, workload and fiduciary risk. The key plan elements are linked to make each more deliberate, and to reduce the chance of things falling between the cracks.

The Process promotes:

  • High participation
  • Reasonable savings rates
  • Appropriate investments: diversified and risk appropriate
  • Persistence to stick with the retirement savings process through good times and bad

Why not go for great?

A good plan is one where the fiduciaries fulfill their basic obligations, the investment menu is above-average, and the costs are reasonable. A great plan goes to the next level. It’s managed with purpose — to enhance the individual retirement security of your employees. This deliberate style of plan management often leads to better outcomes, lower costs and less worry for the employer.
