Participant Services Cincinnati, Ohio, Oxford Financial Partners

Participant Services

A main point of frustration for a contributing employee in a 401(k) plan is very simple: Where exactly should I be putting my hard-earned money? People may recognize popular catchphrases like “Asset Allocation”, “Diversification”, and “Risk Tolerance”, but what exactly do they all mean?

By providing one-on-one guidance for participants, Oxford is able to assist your employees in understanding how their benefits truly benefit them.


Fiduciary Support Services Cincinnati, Ohio, Oxford Financial Partners

Our fiduciary support services include:

  • 3(21) or 3(38) Investment Fiduciary Services, offered via multiple 3rd party partners

Investment Methodology Cincinnati, Ohio, Oxford Financial Partners

Investment Methodology

As a plan fiduciary, your primary responsibility is to make decisions on your 401(k) that are in the best interest of your participants. As a result, developing an investment menu for participants goes beyond simply numbers. 

Oxford will help you develop a diversified investment lineup that strives for consistency and flexibility. From employees nearing retirement to those just starting out, the lineup you present should allow every participant the ability to diversify for their specific needs and become retirement ready.


Plan Benchmarking Cincinnati, Ohio, Oxford Financial Partners

Plan Benchmarking

Oxford will work with you to benchmark your retirement plan and provide support to help you evaluate the platform, the fees, and the services offered to you and your employees.

Am I a Good Fit?

  • Businesses with less than 100 employees and at least $1,000,000 in 401(k) plan assets who value providing a quality retirement savings program for their employees
  • Small business owners who are concerned about keeping up with the fiduciary liability of offering a retirement plan to employees
  • HR executives who seek a very low-cost retirement plan for their employees combined with high-touch financial planning and employee education

Fees

Did you know that a 401(k) plan with 20-100 employees and $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 in plan assets pays a total of 1.40% per year on average for plan administration and fund expenses? That doesn’t even include what the plan might be paying a financial advisor to service the plan!

Do you wonder if your company’s plan is paying too much? Use the chart below for an estimate of total plan administration and fund expenses under a plan advised by Oxford:

The above illustration is only comparing fees for plan administration and fund expenses and therefore does not include any comparison between the advisory fees paid to the current plan advisor vs. Oxford as the plan advisor. To minimize plan costs, the Oxford advised plan currently uses passively managed index funds. The mutual fund expenses shown are based upon the internal expenses of the current recommended fund lineup, which is subject to change and can vary by plan depending on the individual plan sponsor’s goals and objectives.
