Sept. 18, 2018

ARLINGTON, VA (Sept. 18, 2018) - The National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) is pleased to announce the Top 10 Defined Contribution (DC) Wholesalers, as selected by the nation's leading retirement plan advisors.

"We call them "Wingmen" because if they are doing their job, they have the advisor's back in terms of information, tools, and support," explained Nevin Adams, Chief Content Officer at the American Retirement Association, and Editor-in-Chief of NAPA-Net, the publication that sponsors the award.

With an estimated 1400 record keeping and DCIO external wholesalers working directly with advisors, this Wingmen list represents the top 7 percent of the industry.

  • Bob Sternfeld, John Hancock RPS
  • Scott Ward, John Hancock RPS
  • Dan Zibaitis, John Hancock RPS
  • Travis Gavinski, Lincoln Financial
