We chose to work with AXIS Retirement Analytics because we found them to have the highest level of technology, combined with a flexible and easy to use system that gives us the best output in real time.

AXIS Retirement Analytics™ (, a platform developed by Castle Rock Innovations that provides Banks, Broker-Dealers, RIAs, Product Manufacturers and TPAs with the support needed to comply with the Department of Labor regulations 408(b)(2) and 404(a)(5) fee notifications, recently announced the addition of Alliance Pension Consultants LLC, Retirement Alliance Inc., MBM Advisors and Heintzberger Payne as new clients. These companies will be using AXIS Retirement Analytics™ for their benchmarking services after finding them to be superior over competitors in providing real-time, high-level benchmarking reports.

“We were seeking a solution for our company to help determine fee reasonableness and completed a due diligence process to determine the best partner,” says Jeffrey B. Feld, CPA, Principal at Alliance Pension Consultants, LLC. “We chose to work with AXIS Retirement Analytics™ because we found them to have the highest level of technology, combined with a flexible and easy to use system that gives us the best output in real-time. Their benchmarking tool provides greater insight and intelligence around where our plan falls against industry averages and allows us to prove our value in a tangible way.”

To complement their existing platform of products that helps the retirement industry achieve compliance to DOL regulations, AXIS Retirement Analytics™ introduced benchmarking capabilities into their platform, offering service providers an easy-to-use tool that creates customized benchmarking reports in real-time. Companies have the ability to quickly aggregate information across thousands of plans to anonymously compare fee reasonableness against a comparable plan base.

Tom Loch, Senior Vice President of Castle Rock Innovations, says, “It’s not just about defensively proving fee reasonableness, but our benchmarking tool is also an offensive way to ensure your fees align with the value you’re providing – both up and down. It’s all about the new standards of innovation, value and price.”

AXIS’ benchmarking tool provides companies with the ability to align their plans more specifically to industry averages, helping to meet fiduciary requirements and ensure compliance. With access to these customized reports, companies are able to accurately define their value proposition, helping them to defend current business and win prospective business.
