Plan Sponsor

Through our affiliation with Qualified Plan Advisors (QPA) our Cincinnati Team is providing Plan Sponsors the following services and resources:

  • Full disclosure of all fees
  • Acknowledging fiduciary status in writing as applicable
  • Utilizing "open architecture" platforms and avoiding proprietary fund bias
  • Providing face-to-face participant education
  • Providing professionally managed accounts within your plan

Participant Services

QPA approaches participant education with a face-to-face, "boots-on-the-ground" mentality. We find that participants gain a greater appreciation for their employers sponsorship of a plan, become more engaged in the savings process, and participate at higher rates when the plan sponsor provides education from professional investment advisors. QPA helps to accomplish those results through our comprehensive participant services, such as:

  • Re-enrollment
  • Risk Tolerance Questionnaire
  • Group and on-on-one meetings
  • Employee Gap Analysis
  • Employer Gap Analysis

These services are important, but even more important is our commitment to providing them in person. Rather than send participants to a website for all of their education, we bring the education to your participants.
