Every Dream Possible

Greensboro, NC – Compass Financial Partners is pleased to announce it has been named as one of the finalists for the 2017 PLANSPONSOR Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year award in the LARGE TEAM category.

The 2017 PLANSPONSOR Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year finalists have demonstrated leadership and a commitment to excellence for their retirement plan sponsor clients and participants.

Finalists have been selected among four categories, based on the size of their offices. The segments are: individual or small, large or mega team, based on the size of the practice. If a practice has 10 people or less (including advisers and support staff) it is small, 11-35 people is considered a large team, and more than 35 people is categorized as a mega team.

To be eligible to be a finalist, advisers had to meet the following minimum criteria: having at least three-quarters of business revenue derived from advising employer-sponsored retirement plans, serving as a plan fiduciary, being committed to fee-based compensation and using outcome-based metrics of plan success with clients.
