How we elevate 3(16) Fiduciary services

We relentlessly build smarter plan administration tools

We’re focused on creating the best 401(k) experience for plan sponsors, one that doesn’t stop at investment advice, recordkeeper selection and choosing the fund line up. One that considers the role of the HR, benefits, and finance teams working behind the scenes to administer a 401(k) plan.

To achieve this, we built robust payroll integration that connects with over a dozen cloud-based payroll providers, eliminating manual work. And your plan will have automated compliance checks that run continuously to proactively fix and correct issues that may come up on the plan.

We make plan administration core to our 401(k) advisory practice

In addition to our focus on investments, we believe plan sponsors should not have to shoulder the burden of risking compliance errors and heavy plan administration work in order to offer a 401(k) plan.
