Mariner Holdings has partnered with David Stofer and Mark Nothnagel to launch Mariner Retirement Advisors, a firm focused on providing 401(k) advisory services to plan sponsors throughout the country.
In addition to Stofer, Nothnagel and their team, Mariner Retirement Advisors will consist of Mariner’s existing 401(k) practice, which is led by Tim Helsel.
Martin C Bicknell, chief executive officer of Mariner Holdings, says: “Retirement planning plays a vital role in helping individuals prepare for the future. Employees are increasingly relying on their employer-sponsored retirement plans to fund their retirement and help them achieve their long-term goals. The launch of Mariner Retirement Advisors puts us in an ideal place to advise plan sponsors on a wide range of issues, including plan design, investment selection, asset allocation and fiduciary concerns. Through Mariner Retirement Advisors, we will focus on helping clients create and maintain leading retirement plans with an ultimate goal of increasing plan participants’ retirement readiness.”
The team was formerly with SageView Advisory Group and brings more than 50 years of retirement plan services experience to Mariner Retirement Advisors.
