NS Capital, LLC
There are approximately 533,000 401(k) plans in the U.S. and 90% of them have under 100 participants. The annual cost of these plans is substantially higher than larger plans. Sponsors and participants of these plans are most often being unfairly penalized by their financial services providers, who have demonstrated they can be very predatory when it comes to small 401(k) plans (particularly in terms of hidden fees and conflicts of interest which are built into the investment line up). While the plan is being sold “at no cost to the company” many providers are happy to create the impression that they are ‘trusted advisors” whose advice and investment selection is genuine.
