Services we provide:
Plan design services:
We consult with you at plan implementation and on-going throughout the life of you plan to help you build the best plan for your business and employees. We understand that these objectives may change over time which is why we’re always collaborating with our plan sponsors to adapt their plans as their needs change.
Plan monitoring and benchmarking:
We will help you to understand how well you plan is doing compared to your peer group and your industry as well as continually collaborating with you to devise new strategies to improve your plan and, eventually, make it one of the best in your peer-group/industry.
We are truly open-architecture/built-from-scratch:
-We use no proprietary funds.
-There are no fund restrictions.
-We offset all mutual fund revenue.
-Any piece of our plan infrastructure can be replaced if it is no longer in our clients’ best interests: TPA, Recordkeeper, Custodian, Investment Manager, etc.
A fiduciary partner:
ERISA provides a “safe harbor”, which limits a plan sponsor’s fiduciary liability where a qualified investment manager is appointed. A full delegation under ERISA section 3(38) represents the highest level of investment liability transfer possible under ERISA and rebel Financial specifically accepts this fiduciary status and discretion in writing for our plan sponsors.
Fiduciary review and certification:
We review and certify every plan we take on. If we feel that a plan sponsor is doing something on a plan that we cannot certify then we will not take that plan on as a client. We truly believe in serving the best interests of our plan sponsors and every participant. Therefore, if there is something that violates that ethical “line in the sand” then we would forgo any potential economic benefit (no matter how large); We believe that doing the “right thing” has no monetary price tag.
Enrollment and educational meetings:
We provide enrollment and educational meetings and seminars to help your employees get the most out of your retirement plan so that they can succeed. Did you know that a properly funded and invested retirement account over an average employee’s career would contain almost 3 times more in growth than their actual contributions?!? It is a sad reality that this doesn’t happen for the vast majority of participants because of a lack of education and participation.
Ability to chat and meet with a CFP:
We are a financial planning company at heart that has built a wonderful retirement platform. We have Certified Financial Professionals (CFP) that can help your employees when they have questions or need support that they just can’t receive from the 1-800# of most providers.
Access to professionally managed model portfolios:
We provide our professionally managed, model portfolios to your employees. These are managed in much the same way as we manage our individual high net worth clients’ accounts and they are specific to your plan. What’s more, we don’t charge extra for this service and offer it as an additional benefit to our plans.
Quarterly Market Update Videos:
As an addition to our model portfolios, we produce quarterly videos that explain what happened over the quarter, what we did to manage your participant’s investments, and reinforce why they’re invested the way that they are so they can stay invested and actually realize the great long-term investment returns that allude most investors.
Discounted financial planning services:
Again, financial planning is our specialty and we have streamlined our processes and technology so we can provide great financial planning services at lower prices to help more people. Even so, we will further discount any of your employees’ planning fees with us by 50% of the fee their account generated within the plan.
