Advisor Benchmark

Why Benchmark your ERISA Plan Advisor?

If you’re responsible for your company’s 401(k) plan, you know that it’s difficult to objectively assess the performance of your plan. Is your plan performance what it should be in today’s market, and is your advisor doing what they should be doing? As it turns out, ERISA Plan Advisors differ considerably in their capabilities, cost structures, and service models. Benchmarking enables you to evaluate your advisor’s performance, fee, and service model, and know how they stack up against potential alternative advisors.

As a Plan Steward, you can bring more to the table

Elite HR professionals act as Plan Stewards who go above and beyond to ensure the financial performance of your company and its employees.

Fulfilling your fiduciary duty to your retirement plan necessitates a thorough understanding of your plan advisor’s fee and service model. It’s also essential to know how they stack up against potential alternative advisors. At 90 North Consulting, we are NOT retirement plan advisors. Instead, we offer an independent and objective analysis to help you select the ERISA plan advisor that fits your specific needs.

We make the entire process easy, with minimal time commitment from you. Once the analysis is complete, you get reporting that you can present to the C-Suite that makes you look like an Elite HR professional.
