Short answer, we believe our platform is simply the best solution for plan sponsors. Carolina Wealth Management's open architecture platform offers;
- Maximum Plan Flexibility
- No Proprietary Investments
- Full Fee Transparency
- Fiduciary Support
- Educational Excellence
Open architecture allows the plan sponsor to utilize an independent custodian, recordkeeper, third party administrator and investment advisor in one platform. Unlike bundled approaches that are a one size fits all, open architecture provides the plan sponsor the best service providers with Carolina Wealth as your central point of contact.
Most 401(k) providers do not have the choice of where they custody assets, leaving them with one solution for your plan. Carolina Wealth works with the most respected names in the industry - Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and Fidelity among others. We have the ability to choose the custodian that is right for your situation. Why is this important? Each custodian provides different benefits based on plan metrics. Additionally, the custodian works closely with the recordkeeper to provide reports that are accurate and timely.
Contrary to popular opinion, not all recordkeepers are the same. Carolina Wealth has aligned ourselves with the best recordkeepers so we can provide our clients the most accurate and timely information available.
Third Party Administration (TPA)
Much like the recordkeeper, dozens of choices for a Third Party Administrator exist. Carolina Wealth has established relationships with the best names in the industry so we can offer our clients the right choice, whether it is a local or national TPA.
