ExpertPlan wholesales retirement plans to financial institutions, such as third-party administrators (TPAs), broker/dealers, fund companies, banks and insurance companies, which in turn sell those retirement plans to employers. ExpertPlan's retirement plans include online plan set-up and enrollment as well as complete record keeping and transaction management services. Its Web-based model empowers plan participants to conveniently manage their own accounts, which eliminates third-party errors, and reduces costs and the administrative burdens on the financial professional and the employer. ExpertPlan's 401(k) plans support financial professionals with a streamlined sales process, which enables them to request and generate proposals online, as well as download pre-populated set-up forms.
