Who We Are

About Us

Fiduciary Plan Partners was founded to assist plan sponsors in navigating the complex and convoluted world that is the retirement plan landscape. With a seemingly endless array of vendors to choose from for record-keeping services, investment options, plan design and ongoing participant education, Fiduciary Plan Partners assists investment committees and plan sponsors in evaluating these options by comparing cost to relative benefit received.

As defined contribution plans mature and become larger through market growth, employee and employer deferrals and or acquisition, it is important to ensure that administrative fees, investment management and advisor compensation that compose a retirement plans total cost maintain a competitive structure. By being affiliated with a large independent Broker Dealer like LPL, the advisors at Fiduciary Plan Partners are able to offer comprehensive support backed by a large organization but at a competitive cost structure with no proprietary investment or platform requirements.
