What PPCs Using The Tools Have To Say…

“Dear Don, Sharon and the rest of the support staff and Financial Service Standards, I wanted to provide a brief comment on how your program has helped propel us into the forefront of Company Retirement Consulting. Before your program, we developed an outstanding product. Even with my 29 years in the asset management industry as an owner, it was difficult to convince plan trustees that we truly had a superior product. Your training program in 2005 opened my eyes as to how firms will compete in the future. Your Best Practice Standards have a strong foundation because they are based on the fiduciary principles established by the Center for Fiduciary Studies. Applying your Best Practice Standards in our Retirement Plan program, has enabled us to differentiate ourselves from the competition. We have become process driven in all aspects of our program. This has allowed us to target even $50 million plans. You not only changed the direction of our company, but will also help thousands of participants properly plan for their retirement rather than default into it.

"I wish you much success.”

- Bud Verfaillie, AIFA, PPC, CFP
CEO Victory Asset Management Co. Inc.

“We used the planning administration calendar and the employee report card at one of the presentations to a company in NY that has 35 employees and 2 million in assets back in August when we did the initial presentation. Since then, we have signed up this company for Jan 1st, 2007. Thank you for your training and the materials you have made available to us.”

- John DiRoma
Owner
Newlight Financial Services

“The 401k Service Solution has changed my initial conversations with prospective clients. Instead of asking about features and benefits or whether there is anything they are unhappy about, I now ask “How do you define a Successful Retirement Plan?”. I often receive a response of ‘I don’t know.” Or “I’ve never thought of that”. It truly takes our conversation to a whole new level. Inevitably, they ask me what it means to have a successful retirement plan. We then get into the discussion of Vision, Goals and Objectives, etc. With most of our clients – this is maximizing the owners’ contributions and ensuring plan participation are on the right track for retirement.

"By following the processes in the 401k Service Solution, we have been able to ensure we are keeping plan sponsors compliant and able to prove our value in ways other than gross investment returns.”

- Mario GiGanti
Principal
Cornerstone Capital Advisors

“I have been able to use the 401k Service Solution in many ways thus far. The two most useful tools so far have been the Employer/Employee Report Cards and the Plan Review and Monitoring courses. These two vital areas, trustee/participant education and monitoring compliance, are at the forefront of what the Pension Protection Act of 2006 spells out – that 401k plans must follow the prudent process that is laid out in the Investment Policy and that the participants must be better educated and better suited to prepare for their own retirements. These themes are resonating strongly with our current and prospective clients.”
