2018 marks the seventh consecutive year Xponential Growth Solutions (XGS) has held the Retirement Plan Roadshow, first founded in 2012 to assist U.S. employers in reaching their retirement plan goals through educational workshops. The 2018 Philadelphia Fiduciary Summit, set to take place Tuesday, July 24th 2018 from 11:00am to 3:30pm (luncheon included) at The Inn at Villanova University in Philadelphia, PA, is the eleventh stop along this annual, nationwide tour.

XGS is committed to providing education and resources that help business owners, fiduciaries, and finance, human resource, and benefit executives to better understand retirement plan best practices and industry trends. This, in turn, allows them to make informed decisions and develop strategies that will help businesses to grow and provide positive outcomes for plan participants.

The annual Retirement Plan Road Show supports this goal by pairing local speakers with industry leaders to discuss a diverse range of topics, from fiduciary responsibility, plan design, and investments, to healthcare, wellness, and more. In 2017, the Retirement Plan Roadshow reached over 1,200 companies and organizations, positively impacting more than 2 million plan participants representing over $125 billion in retirement plan assets. XGS hopes to have an even greater impact with the 2018 Retirement Plan Road Show.

Following the success from previous years, Mike Falcone, Vice President of NFP's Retirement Division is once again hosting the Philadelphia Fiduciary Summit. Mike Falcone emphasizes that "Nobody said being a fiduciary is an easy job, especially these days when everything you do is under someone’s microscope. What matters most is that you do things prudently and document what you’ve done. This Summit will focus on steps you can take to ensure your plan is run efficiently and in the most cost-effective manner. By doing so, your participants will be the ultimate beneficiaries of your actions".

As the event host, Mike Falcone will lead the discussions on timely fiduciary topics affecting local plan sponsors. This year’s lineup of guest speakers includes:

  • Bradford Campbell, Current Partner at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP and Former Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employee Benefits and Former Head of the EBSA
  • More speakers to be announced!
