Newport Awarded 70 “Best in Class” Honors in PLANSPONSOR DC Survey

Jan 22, 2020

Walnut Creek, CA—January 22, 2020—Newport retirement services announced today that it has been awarded 70 “Best in Class” awards in PLANSPONSOR magazine’s 2019 Defined Contribution Survey. The reviews from our plan sponsor clients earned us the #1 ranking in total awards for those markets in which we compete.

The company’s awards include “Best in Class” honors in nearly every category measured by PLANSPONSOR. This includes the services that matter most to plan sponsors and their employees: technology, education and communications, plan administration, investments and fees, and account/service teams. 

Our total awards place us third among the 23 retirement services providers who participated in this year’s survey.  And just as rewarding, our clients also indicated they are very likely to recommend Newport as a provider.  

PLANSPONSOR is the premier monthly publication reporting on the retirement services industry, and its survey is one of the industry’s leading measures of companies’ satisfaction with their plan providers.
