Press Release from PlanPILOT

CHICAGO, IL  –  February 18, 2019  – PlanPILOT is pleased to announce it has been named as one of the 2019 PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers.

The PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers is an annual listing of adviser individuals and teams that stand out in the industry in terms of a series of quantitative measures. These include the dollar value of qualified plan assets under administration (AUA), as well as the number of plans under advisement.

PlanPILOT was recognized in the “Small Teams With $1.8 Billion or More in Retirement Plan Assets Under Advisement” and “Small Teams With 115 Retirement Plans or More Under Advisement” categories.

“We are proud to announce that, for the second year in a row, we are recognized by our clients and PLANADVISER for this award,” said Mark Olsen, Managing Director. “Our team is honored to be named to this list, and it speaks to our commitment to provide fiduciary support and create solutions that lead to our clients’ and their participants’ success.”

The Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers is segmented into four groups based on the number of advisers and number of total employees including support staff: Individual advisers are one adviser with support staff; a small team comprises of two or more advisers and support staff, the total not exceeding 10; a large team is a group of 11 to 35 advisers and support staff; mega teams have 36 or more team members.

To qualify for a particular segment individuals needed to advise a minimum of 100 plans or $950 million in retirement plan AUA; small teams had to advise at least $1.7 billion in retirement plan assets or more than 115 plans; large teams needed $3.5 billion or more in retirement plan AUA or 150 or more plans; and mega teams had to oversee at least $10 billion in retirement plan AUA or more than 300 plans.

The 2019 PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers list is available here.


The “PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers” list is compiled from responses to the PLANADVISER Retirement Plan Adviser Survey. The list is drawn solely from a set of quantitative variables and information in the survey supplied by the advisers themselves. For an adviser to be eligible for recognition in this year’s Top 100, he had to submit a completed entry to our 2018 Retirement Plan Adviser Survey, which was fielded this past September. A sub-segment of the questions was used to determine eligibility for the Top 100.
