Positioning You for Client Success

When it comes to retirement plans:

  • We act as the fiduciary only if you need us to.
  • We pass back all revenue sharing.
  • We offer only level compensation and full fund neutrality.
  • We have an extensive list of nonproprietary funds on our platform.
  • We provide total transparency in our pricing.
  • We partner with TPAs and advisors, rather than selling direct.

Easing Workloads, Reducing Risk

Introduce your clients to our range of industry-leading services and make their lives easier. Select from administrative support, fiduciary protection and a broad range of nonproprietary funds. Our clean data technology can help keep errors out of plans and lower your clients' exposure to fiduciary risk.

The Standard offers consolidated billing with flexible format and payment options.
Administrative Support
Save Time

We can partner with you or a plan's TPA to help your clients save time and money. How do we do this? By taking on administrative tasks and freeing your clients to focus on other business concerns. We can take care of:

  • Delivery of participant notices, statements and disclosures
  • Compliance testing
  • Eligibility monitoring and notifications
  • Review and management of loans, hardship distributions, withdrawals and QDROs
Fiduciary protection
Increased Fiduciary Protection
Assign Responsibility to The Standard

We even offer 3(16) fiduciary protection. We can back our services in writing with a “hold-harmless” indemnification clause.

Transfer Clean Data
Clean Data. Less Risk.
Offer the Power of Clean Data

Our clean data technology ensures accurate data for compliance testing and for TPAs. This technology — included in every plan we offer — scrubs data with every payroll submission by running more than 90 validations. Higher accuracy means less exposure to fiduciary risk and less time spent on corrections.

Investment Options and Services
Pick the Platform and Investments

We offer both open architecture and group annuity platforms as plan investment options. With either platform, you pick the funds. In addition, The Standard passes back 100% of all mutual fund revenue sharing to plan participants, ensuring complete objectivity whenever funds are selected.
