Greenspring Advisors Named to List of Nation’s Top DC Advisor Teams

The 2024 NAPA Top DC Advisor Teams: Nominees had to be individual advisor team/offices with a defined contribution book of business, in a single physical location totaling at more than $100 million in AUA, based on self-reported assets under advisement as of Dec. 31, 2023. The accolade is based on the previous calendar year’s numbers but was too unwieldy and confusing to tag it as such. The National Association of Plan Advisors has updated the title to reflect the year in which it’s released even though it is still based on last year’s numbers. Hence you will not find a list titled “2023” in the archives. The list is created and conducted by the National Association of Plan Advisors, an affiliate organization of the American Retirement Association, a non-profit association. Greenspring Advisors and our advisors did not pay to be considered for this award; however, Greenspring Advisors does have a paid membership with the National Association of Plan Advisors.

Two of Greenspring’s Advisors Named in 2024 PLANADVISER’s Top Retirement Plan Advisers

The 2024 PLANADVISER Top Retirement Plan Advisers recognition recognizes the top retirement plan advisers in the industry based on quantitative measures from the year prior. To be listed, advisers had to have a minimum requirement of 50 plan clients or retirement plan assets under advisement of $400 million or more. After meeting the minimum plan or asset count, advisers are also highlighted if they meet the following categories: meaning, 91% - 100% of clients that are 401(k) plan sponsors, or 10 or more 403(b), 457, nonqualified, DB, cash balance, SEP, SIMPLE or MEP/PEP plan clients. As this recognition is based solely on quantitative figures, there is no judging or subjective measurement, and it is not indicative of any adviser’s future performance. Neither advisory firms nor their employees pay a fee in exchange for this recognition.
