Similar to our wealth management criteria, HawsGoodwin works very closely with business owners, executives, and HR professionals to create a retirement plan strategy that takes into consideration the needs and culture of your workforce. We believe our plans are more customized and client-specific than those recommended by the big institutions. We serve in a fiduciary capacity and assist you in complying with laws and regulations, documenting plan governance, developing an investment menu, and finding and managing a recordkeeper. We take time to educate your workforce on what their plan entails and ways that can help them get on track to meet their retirement wishes.
Or goal is not only to provide exceptional investment advice, but to help incentivize your team through a retirement plan they will appreciate.

- Development of an Investment Policy Statement to enhance plan oversight and fiduciary responsibility
