The Financial Times (FT) 401 Top US Retirement Advisers 2020 was awarded in October 2020 and was given by the FT , a daily newspaper with a focus on business and economic news. Neither SEIA nor its Financial Advisors paid a fee to FT in exchange for the ranking. Applicants must manage a minimum of $75 MM in Defined Contribution (DC) plan assets and a minimum of 20 percent of their client’s assets in DC plans. Qualifying advisers completed a questionnaire about the nature of their practice and FT grades advisers on six broad factors relating to DC plan business: AUM, Growth, Specialization, Experience, industry certifications, and compliance record. Third-party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation.
