Review your current retirement plan
Compare your options 
Learn more about University benefits
Learn more about our affordable and value-added services

Working with Ohio University Staff & Faculty

Our firm is one of the only Fiduciary providers at Ohio University and has been serving for over 15 years. Since a good portion of our clients are employees of Ohio University, we try to have a representative on campus once a month to meet with current clients as well as be available for networking opportunities. 


We do not work for any large financial or investment company. Instead, we work directly for our clients and then leverage multiple larger custodians to hold their actual accounts. At Ohio University, the most suitable custodian is TIAA CREF. We directly manage our clients' investment accounts through deep discount custodians and then build retirement plans that coordinate their OPERS, STRS, SS benefits, etc. when they're ready.
