For more than two decades, the PRISM team has been serving the complex fiduciary obligations of plan sponsors. The institutions we serve are as varied as their needs. And, our in-depth knowledge of the risks, intricacies, and regulatory guidelines of the retirement business has helped protect them.
Our in-house investment professionals, plan specialists, and ERISA experts have guided plan sponsor decisions, developed retirement plans, and have given plan participants the best possible opportunities for viable retirements.
Most importantly, our retirement plan clients have been with us for an average of 10 years. That says something about us. But don’t take it from us, take it from them. We’d be happy to arrange for you to speak with our clients as part of your search process.
In short, we’re not just our clients’ retirement plan consultants; we’re their retirement plan partners. We want to be yours, too.
