SRP’s 2018 FT 201 Top Retirement Plan Advisors

This is the fourth annual FT 401 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the asset management industry.

The FT 401 is one in a series of rankings of top advisers developed by the FT in partnership with Ignites Research, including the FT 300 (independent RIA firms) and the FT 400 (broker-dealer advisers).

“Each of these advisors is dedicated to creating the best possible retirement outcomes,” said Jeff Cullen, Managing Partner of Strategic Retirement Partners. “We are honored that their commitment to clients, participants and the industry has been recognized by Financial Times.”

Financial advisers from across the US applied for consideration, having met a set minimum of requirements. The applicants were then graded on six criteria: DC assets under management; DC plan growth rate; specialization in DC plans; years of experience; advanced industry credentials; and compliance record. There are no fees or other considerations required of advisers who apply for the FT 401.

The final FT 401 represents an impressive cohort of elite advisers: the “average” adviser in this year’s FT 401 has 20 years of experience advising DC plans and advises $1.26 billion in DC plan assets. The FT 401 advisers hail from 38 states and Washington, D.C., and DC plans on average account for 81% of their practices’ total assets.
