Fiduciary compliance is of course all the rage (and concern) for 401k advisors, and two well-known firms have partnered to ensure better coverage.
PRI will deliver strategic consulting on Department of Labor regulations and ERISA compliance and provide resources and training for Pensionmark advisors through its Resource Center platform.
“PRI is thrilled to have the opportunity to assist Pensionmark in continuing to build out a competitive and compliant framework for their advisors to serve the needs of retirement investors,” Jason Roberts, chief executive of PRI and partner at Retirement Law Group, said in a statement. “By providing ongoing support to both home office personnel and the Pensionmark network of advisors, our partnership will allow them to continue to grow their retirement business in a profitable and sustainable manner.”
“Jason has been a long-time colleague and friend to our firm, and this partnership enhances our relationship allowing us to offer an even more robust fiduciary support model for our advisors to leverage,” Troy Hammond, Pensionmark’s president and CEO added. “Jason has been instrumental in the development of many of our existing agreements, documents and procedures and we look forward to expanding the breadth and depth of those resources.”
Pensionmark’s affiliation structure allows its partners to customize its full-service suite of deliverables and back-office support to meet the unique needs of their firms, while maintaining their independence and ownership of their businesses.
With access to resources, along with the infrastructure and support teams to help manage them, Pensionmark advisors can leverage these tools and services the home office offers.
Through the Advisor Support Program, professionals receive marketing and prospect generation, investment reporting and analytics, fiduciary training, access to the Financial Wellness Program, internal sales desk benchmarking and more.
