Integrating securities and ERISA compliance, PRI delivers customized and subscription-based solutions to broker-dealers and investment advisers to manage risk, create economies of scale and increase revenue. Drawing on its broad experience in working with all affected business units allows PRI to develop uniquely profitable and sustainable strategies for the retirement plan marketplace.
RetirementAdvantage delivers a comprehensive suite of “plug-and-play” resources – ranging from forms, agreements, disclosures, compliance and supervisory procedures, etc. to sales support and ongoing training - designed to help retirement service providers stay competitive while seeking to comply with the technical and ever-changing requirements imposed under ERISA. The RetirementAdvantage program allows supervising firms to scale their retirement-related business at a fraction of the cost of hiring internal expertise, and ERISA-centric training and ongoing updates provide consistency and predictability in managing compliance costs on a going forward basis.
