2019 PLANSPONSOR Adviser of the Year Nominations Close Friday

The nomination process is still open for the 2019 PLANSPONSOR Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year Awards, but not for long! The nomination form will only be available through Friday at 11:59 p.m. EST. 


Since early September, the nominating process has remained opened for the annual PLANSPONSOR Plan Sponsor of the Year and Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year awards.

As in the past years, PLANSPONSOR/PLANADVISER editors are soliciting your help in identifying qualified candidates for each award. If you work with or for, or know of, a great plan sponsor, plan adviser or plan adviser team, please help us recognize the best in the business.  

For plan sponsors, nominations may be made by providers, advisers, consultants, actuaries, attorneys, third-party administrators, employees and colleagues, or, you can even nominate yourself. The award is given in many categories to recognize all plan types, so any plan sponsor can be eligible. The nomination form is available at https://www.research.net/r/2019PSOYNominations.

Nominations for the Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year awards, now given in four categories based on practice and team size, may be made by plan sponsor clients, employers, brokers/dealers of eligible advisers, as well as from working partners of these advisers, such as investment vendors, accountants, attorneys and plan administrators. However, self-nominations are not permitted. The nomination form is available at https://www.research.net/r/2019RPAYNominations.

The PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers will be selected from the annual PLANADVISER Retirement Plan Adviser Survey, which is currently in the field. Advisers can complete that survey for consideration as a Top 100, through September 7, here.

Award recipients across all categories will be honored at the PLANSPONSOR/PLANADVISER annual Awards for Excellence celebration in New York City on March 28, 2019, along with many other award winners across the retirement industry.

The deadline for the 2019 Plan Adviser and Adviser Team of the Year award nominations is October 19, while the deadline for the Plan Sponsor of the Year awards nominations is November 7.
