Our Good Life Solution
As fiduciaries to our portfolio management clients, time and again we see the need for a 401(k) plan that successfully prepares participants for retirement. In response, we have created the Good Life 401(k) solution which combines our unmatched personal service with professional money management and low-cost investment strategies.
The Good Life 401(k) is designed as a retirement plan solution for small- to mid-size companies. The plan utilizes Exchange Traded Funds (“ETFs”) to create diversified investment strategies with straightforward fees.
Administration & Recordkeeping
Good Life works with third-party administrators to walk you through a custom designed retirement plan to specifically address your company’s needs and goals for plan creation. Once implemented, the third-party administrator (TPA) works directly with your payroll/compliance department to ensure all ERISA and Department of Labor requirements are met.

Serving as either an ERISA 3(38) or 3(21) investment manager to your plan, we provide expertise in the area of investments, reducing the personal liability of the employer for selection and monitoring of the individual investments in the plan. As the highest level of ERISA fiduciary, we have the duty to act prudently on behalf of the plan participants and their beneficiaries.
Although investment costs are not the only determinate of performance, Good Life believes they play an integral part in our fiduciary responsibilities. We develop our investment options using all ETFs to provide your plan with the most reasonable pricing.
As registered investment adviser representatives, we will work with your employees on an individual basis. We educate and advise on the importance of participating in your retirement plan while helping your employee choose the appropriate investment options. Good Life is on-site at your company twice yearly and serves as a year-around resource to increase plan participation rates and employee financial awareness.
