This strategic alliance will leverage Ascensus and ABP’s complementary strengths, further building both brands within the medical community. Ascensus offers a comprehensive, full-service retirement program with a flexible, open architecture investment platform and full-fee transparency. Other advantages include Ascensus’ streamlined approach to plan management, which uses robust web tools to simplify plan sponsor responsibilities and a comprehensive employee education program. In turn, ABP delivers a powerful multiple-employer approach with experience leveraging the combined scale and scope of participating employers to deliver unique features and benefits previously only available to larger institutions.
“The ABP brand and marketing support program will provide RIAs with a competitive edge in the healthcare industry,” said Mike Narkoff, Senior Vice President, Sales at Ascensus. “We welcome the opportunities this partnership presents and are excited to provide ENTRI with a superior retirement program tailored to their unique needs.”
“Because ENTRI is owned by a national medical society, our interests, values, and goals are directly aligned with providing great products and services for the healthcare community. For this very reason, ABP selected Ascensus to deliver a retirement plan to our members and the greater medical professionals’
