Newport Group Ranked a Top DC Recordkeeper

Jul 12, 2017

Walnut Creek, CA—July 12, 2017— We are pleased to announce that the retirement industry’s leading publication has again named Newport Group one of the nation’s largest defined contribution recordkeepers.

In its annual list of top recordkeepers, Plansponsor magazine ranked Newport Group 17th out of the more than 50 firms featured in the survey.

This year’s ranking positions us firmly among the best-known brands in retirement services, and further solidifies our position as one of the largest independent recordkeepers working through financial advisors. It also reflects the growth of our entire retirement business—both qualified and non-qualified. In addition, Newport Group ranked:
  •  #11 in assets by plans in the $10 million to $100 million range
  •  #1 in non-qualified assets, as our ranking from last year continues to stand
These rankings are the result of our ongoing commitment to our sponsors, advisors and our core values: accountability, client focus, collaboration, integrity, and knowledge.
