ESOP Partners is excited to announce a new partnership with Economic Group Pension Services (EGPS), serving as their ESOP subject matter expert. In this arrangement, ESOP Partners will provide administration and consulting on all things ESOP to EGPS clients.. This approach allows EGPS to focus on its core areas of expertise and provide its clients with a best-in-class service provider for all their qualified retirement plans. “ESOP Partners is a great service provider choice for clients desiring this plan type. We’re excited to partner with them, as their values and service standards align with ours, and they provide exemplary retirement plan consulting to their clients,” stated Dawn Genz, Chief Operating Officer for EGPS.
ESOP Partners focuses solely on ESOPs and does not compete in the 401(k) administration marketplace. This allows them to provide industry-leading ESOP expertise and consulting services, while also allowing their clients to implement an unbundled approach and select a premium service provider for both their ESOP and 401(k) plans. By implementing this model, clients receive greater service provider accountability. This also allows ESOP companies to regularly evaluate and change service providers, manage plan expenses with fee transparency, and otherwise satisfy their plan sponsor and trustee fiduciary responsibilities.
Whether it be two separate plans or a KSOP, ESOP Partners actively manages the combined plan testing and administration issues by taking the lead to prepare the combined plan testing and collaborating with 401(k) service providers to proactively address data collection and combined plan combined testing issues. ESOP Partners leverages technology to provide combined plan reporting solutions to ESOP companies.
