Mission Viejo, California - May 1, 2017 --California-based retirement plan consulting and advisory firm, Financial Management Network, is pleased to announce that Aran Sahagun has joined the team bringing 18 years of experience in the financial services industry, including roles in money management, investment modeling and 401(k) management. He is responsible for 401(k) and pension plan management, assisting both employers and employees in creating an effective plan in regard to purpose, efficiencies and compliance.
Aran was born and raised in Southern California, graduating from the University of Redlands with a degree in Business Management: his entire professional career has been in Orange County. He spends his personal life keeping up with his wife and seven kids and giving time to the Boy Scouts of America.
“Financial Management Network is expanding to support pre-retirees as they work to save and prepare for retirement, and Aran is an important component of that expansion. We look forward to seeing our plan sponsor clients and employees enjoy the benefits of his expertise.” Financial Management Network Founder, Curtis Farrell, AIF®, CFP®
Financial Management Network (FMN) serves over one hundred retirement plans of all types and sizes, providing service provider benchmarking, plan fee and cost evaluations, investment menu design, and plan monitoring. Plan sponsor and participant education is a pillar of FMN’s service philosophy; we believe the success of an employee retirement program is measured by individual employee retirement outcomes. We are thrilled to welcome Aran to the team as a strong client advocate.
In recent years, qualified plan administration has become increasingly complex, both for the plan sponsor and participant. Financial Management Network works with retirement plan sponsors to create and follow a process that seeks to fulfill fiduciary responsibility while driving positive retirement outcomes. Curtis Farrell has been recognized for working directly with plan participants as well as sponsors. These efforts have helped promote more successful retirement programs, where employees better understand their plan and personal goals, and how today’s decisions will impact their retirement. “We take great pride in serving as an advocate to 401(k) retirement plan clients,” Farrell notes. It is one reason why he has been recognized by PlanAdviser Magazine’s Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers in both 2015 and 2016 and added to the 2015 Financial Times Top 401 Retirement Plan Advisors list.
