Episode #4 – Active 401k – (Sponsored) a Marketing Tool and Advice Solution
With Craig Wear
- It sounds like a great way to address participants that fail to pay attention or show up for the one-on-one meetings.
- It sounds like it’s a great solution to outsourcing the participant advice solution.
- It also sounds like a way for you to offer a valuable service you may not be able or willing to offer.
- And it seems like it’s also a way for you to bring in additional revenue based on their pricing structure and your flexibility in what and how you charge your clients.
I sat down and talked to Craig Wear, Founder and CEO of Q3 Advisors LLC – an SEC Registered RIA to learn more about Active 401k and recorded our conversation.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- What exactly is Active 401k?
- Who typically signs up for this service?
- How the model works (getting the risk tolerance of each subscriber, making portfolio recommendations, etc.)
- What are the fees and how does the advisor charge their client for this?
- How can an advisor learn more?
(Pay special attention at 12:26 where Craig talks about the marketing benefits of offering this service.)
