This is a must-attend event for Recordkeepers and Third Party Administrators to learn how the retirement industry has changed under a climate of increasing pressure and transparency by Congress and the Department of Labor, and why it is necessary to take a proactive stance to help clients contain fees, expand provider services and enhance investment opportunities. Tom Loch of Castle Rock Innovations will moderate and lead a discussion on the current retirement environment, as well as the need for retirement service firms to re-evaluate and enhance their practices in today’s world.
Joining Loch is panel of experts including Jeff Feld, Principal of Alliance Pension Consultants, and Lindsey Black, CEO and President of MBM Advisors who will discuss how their firms are using innovative strategies and best practices to keep current plan business and win new clients, all while plan sponsors are putting added scrutiny on the value in line with fees.
