Financial Advisor magazine’s Eric Rasmussen recently sat down with CEO Fielding Miller to talk about CAPTRUST’s focus on retirement plan advisory services and the challenges and opportunities in that specialty market segment.
Retirement Plan Participants
Having access to a well-designed retirement plan and receiving information on the value of saving and investing for retirement is enough for some employees. However the vast majority of employees continually voice their desire for more help. We have found that education about saving and investing is simply not enough and what employees need is unbiased and independent advice, individualized retirement planning support, and resources that can answer critical questions including:
- How much will I need to have in savings to be able to retire?
- When will I know if I can afford to retire?
- How much of my paycheck do I need to set aside?
- How should I invest in my retirement account?
- How will I replace my income during retirement?
For over 25 years, the CAPTRUST participant advice team has been working with employees to understand their unique circumstances, answer their questions, and give them the confidence they need not only participate in their retirement plan, but to achieve success by saving enough and investing appropriately. This is accomplished by providing unbiased advice during individual consultations using our proprietary Retirement Blueprint™ tablet application over the phone with scheduled appointments or in person with a Retirement Counselor. CAPTRUST uses a variety of technologies to deliver pertinent information, conduct workshops, and assist employees in understanding their path to retirement success.
