Retirement Plan Sponsors

MBL Advisors recognizes the importance of a cost-effective, well designed retirement plan as part of a total rewards program for your company. Our consultative, results driven process is designed to minimize fiduciary risk and enhance participant outcomes. Upon initial engagement we focus on the following critical areas of concern:

Plan Design:

Our experience in developing SMILE TM (Strategic Management Incentives for Long-term Employees) provides a unique approach in designing qualified plans to maximize the value of the plan for ownership, highly compensated employees and rank and file employees.

Plan Expenses:

Through benchmarking studies and Requests for Proposals, we provide the resources to make sure the plan is competitively priced based on the services being delivered. High fees for low or no service is a significant fiduciary issue for plan sponsors.

Investment Options:

As an ERISA 3(21) fiduciary we work side by side with the Plan Sponsor. We review and revise the Investment Policy Statement to create a framework for investment selection and ongoing performance monitoring.

Fiduciary Risk:

Our fiduciary process is designed to minimize risk to the Plan Sponsor. We provide the Retirement Plan committee all the tools necessary to minimize risk and stay in compliance.


We work with the other plan providers to assure the service commitments are being honored in the eyes of the participant and Plan Committee. Our service team is always ready and able to assist.

We have worked with privately held businesses and public companies in a wide range of industries such as manufacturing, distribution, information technology, financial services and with leading providers such as Fidelity, ING, Great West, Wells Fargo, Nationwide, John Hancock, Transamerica and others.
