We cracked the code on influencing retirement savings rates. The secret: A personal nudge by someone you trust.
We deliver jargon-free presentations that motivate employees to save into their retirement plan. Our enrollment meetings have been described as "pep rallies for savings."
We offer 30 minute, individual financial planning meetings for ALL employees.
Our seminars include non-conflicted, expert advice on a range of financial topics, including household budgeting, debt repayment, risk management/insurance, college savings and retirement planning.

We generally work with companies and organizations with more than a hundred employees, and we have clients with over 10,000 employees.
We work with clients across the country and successfully execute financial wellness programming via Zoom for companies based in and outside of Arkansas.
We can help our companies do recordkeeper and TPA searches. In that world, one size does not fit all. We have worked with the following recordkeepers: Vanguard, ADP, Paychex, Voya, Ubiquity, and Employee Fiduciary. In a few cases the company has wanted to keep its recordkeeper for ease of transition.
We offer financial wellness for companies that have recordkeeper-only plans without an advisor. The programming can be flexible to the needs of the company. For instance, we can provide student loan education, HSA education, or a host of our other financial wellness programming based on the unique make-up of company employees. In this situation, the company would pay directly for our services.
We see two significant advantages for fixed fees:
• Fixed fees remove all conflicts of interest with plan participants. Without the incentive to grow assets, our advisors are free to recommend aggressive student loan and credit card debt repayment, building an emergency fund, saving into and HSA, and many other financial maneuvers that can sometimes be better than putting all available funds into retirement savings. Participants also trust us. Sometimes we need someone to choose a 30% deferral rate into savings in order to catch up on retirement savings. We are able to make that recommendation with the participant knowing we will not financially benefit from that advice.• Fixed fees mean that plan fees as a percentage of assets would likely go down over time. As retirements are more precarious and difficult to achieve, fees must not erode plan participant assets. We are proud that our fees reflect our work, and as participants save more and grow their money in the market, our fees have less impact on their growth.
