Does Your Business Have a Great 401k?
Offering an excellent retirement plan can be key in attracting and retaining top talent. In today’s 401(k) marketplace, our experience tells us plan sponsors are looking for four main benefits:
- Minimal implementation costs
- No stress compliance
- Solid track record from the investment options
- Quality client service and employee education resources
The Oxford advised 401(k) platform achieves all of these goals for you:
The financial needs of your employees come in all shapes and sizes, meaning different goals and objectives need to be addressed. All employees, whether they are struggling with debt or managing a large nest egg in preparation for retirement, can benefit from objective, unbiased advice.
For participants interested in a more in-depth look at their financial plan, we will take them through our proprietary Financial Wellcheck.
A main point of frustration for a contributing employee in a 401(k) plan is very simple: Where exactly should I be putting my hard-earned money? People may recognize popular catchphrases like “Asset Allocation”, “Diversification”, and “Risk Tolerance”, but what exactly do they all mean?
By providing one-on-one guidance for participants, Oxford is able to assist your employees in understanding how their benefits truly benefit them.
Oxford will work with you to benchmark your retirement plan and provide support to help you evaluate the platform, the fees, and the services offered to you and your employees.
