Today’s investing and retirement world is adrift with plan sponsor confusion, underfunded retirement accounts, participants inadequately educated in investing and product pushers selling investments under the leaky umbrella of education.We have a mission to stop all that.
As resources Investors, Advisors and Plan Sponsors have news aggregators, expensive educational programs, promotional websites, canned Q & A articles, quizzes and even games, none of which lead them to a clear unbiased understanding of exactly what they should do. We aim to change that by being the one clear, concise source which will tell Sponsors, Trustees, Plan Participants, Individual Investors and Advisors exactly what to do. No, we are not financial planners, insurance agents, stock brokers or RIAs. We help them. They are our clients.
