Solutions for Retirement Plan Advisors

Taking Fiduciary Standards to a Whole New Level

As a retirement plan advisor, you have a unique set of obligations and requirements that we have examined closely and developed systems and solutions to solve for. Some of these include:

Standard of (K)are

As part of your partnership with PAG, you will gain full access to Standard of (k)are™, the first CRM software that allows you full transparency into your retirement plan services. With benefits for the advisor, plan sponsor and participant, the software is one-of-a-kind — providing you the accessibility and transparency you need to be the plan advisor you are.

“Today was the first time I went live with So(k). I did several onboarding calls with participants and they absolutely loved it, as did I. This system is smooth, thorough, and is a huge value-add to our 401(k) clients. Fantastic experience so far.”

Jeff Mutchler, Wealth Strategies & Management
