Managing the Process, Promoting Plan Success
We are The Plan Advocate at The Philadelphia Group, an independent consulting practice advising retirement plan sponsors as investment fiduciaries.
We understand the main concerns that plague plan sponsors: fiduciary responsibilities, how their plan impacts their employees, and how to adequately prepare their employees for retirement. Plan sponsors seek to work with advisors who have specialized knowledge and experience with corporate retirement plans.
The Plan Advocate is a team of such specialized advisors within The Philadelphia Group – an independent retirement plan and wealth management services firm powered by LPL Financial as their broker/dealer.Contact Us
