Retirement Plan Consulting*

Select associates of GCG provide professional independent consulting services for company sponsored retirement plans including 401(k) Plans, Profit Sharing plans, 403(b) Plans and more.


Plan Needs Assessment

Based on the stated objectives of the Plan Sponsor and its representatives, we will conduct a needs assessment for the Plan, based on such factors as the Plan's size, participation rates, investment options, and current status.  We will then recommend a course of action regarding key provisions of the Plan.


Facilitate Provider Selection

Our Advisors will assist in establishing selection criteria (which may consider costs, investment options and services) based on the stated objectives of the Plan Sponsor and its representatives.   In accordance with such criteria, the next step is to assist the Plan in assessing different providers' abilities to meet your stated objectives.

Participant Education

We organize and conduct meetings with plan participants on features and benefits of the Plan, and deliver general financial education for Plan participants.

Recommendation of Investment Options
