RPS Retirement Plan Advisors

In 2010, Slaughter Associates launched RPS Retirement Plan Advisors to provide 401(k) services in order to bring the same array of investment choices for 401(k) clients as high net worth clients – quality portfolios that are balanced and diversified. RPS Retirement Plan Advisors is a 3(38) fiduciary advisor that prepares employees to retire on time and financially secure while easing much of the fiduciary duties and associated liability from the company's plan sponsor.

Only a few select advisors have the unique ability to assume fiduciary duties and liability as a 3(38) advisor. To serve as a 3(38) advisor, you must be a Registered Investment Advisor and provide services without commissions. As a fee-only Registered Investment Advisor, RPS Retirement Plan Advisors meets these requirements, and has delivered fiduciary services to our clients for more than 20 years.
