Our Three-Step Process for Determining Your Retirement Plan Needs
We use the following three step process to ensure that we provide a retirement plan that meets your needs now and in the future:
Step 1: Understand your goals and objectives for your retirement plan.
Step 2: Construct a customized retirement plan that includes a range of investment options. We work with each plan sponsor to design an Investment Policy Statement that aligns with their objectives.
Step 3: Provide ongoing oversight and monitoring of the investments to ensure that you are providing high-quality solutions for your employees.
Choosing Investments for Your Plan
We will craft a menu of investment options that are suitable for your plan using our open architecture platform at Fidelity. This will provide participants with the best investment options across all asset classes. In addition, quarterly reviews of the investments are conducted by the firm’s investment committee and adjustments are made as they see fit. We meet with the employees of the firm semi-annually to conduct education sessions that will assist in investment management and asset allocation of the individual 401(k) account. Essentially, principals and employees are given unlimited access to a qualified investment advisor.
