¹The PLANSPONSOR Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year includes winners across four categories: individual, small team, large team and mega team. Judges look for advisory practices that employ industry best practices across a number of areas, including the implementation of auto enrollment, auto escalation and re-enrollment, especially at higher levels than the industry norms. Advisers that are successful in the award program need to demonstrate a commitment to outcomes-based measurement and encourage plan sponsor clients to create plans not that are just in the best interest of the company but are in the best interest of participants. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of future performance. Neither the advisors nor their parent firms pay a fee to PLANSPONSOR in exchange for the Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year award.

²The Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Plan Advisors is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times. The FT 401 is based on data gathered from financial advisors, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s status in seven primary areas, including DC plan assets under management, growth in DC plan business, specialization in DC plan business, and other factors. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of future performance. Neither the advisors nor their parent firms pay a fee to Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 401.

³The PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers list is compiled from responses to the PLANADVISER Retirement Plan Adviser Survey. The list is drawn solely from a set of quantitative variables and information in the survey supplied by the advisers themselves. For an adviser to be eligible for recognition in this year’s Top 100, they had to submit a completed entry to the Retirement Plan Adviser Survey. A sub-segment of the questions was used to determine eligibility for the Top 100. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of future performance. Neither the advisors nor their parent firms pay a fee to PLANADVISER in exchange for inclusion in the Top 100.
