Editor's note: In the June edition of PlanFacts, we wrote about the growth of managed accounts in the retirement industry. Newport Group has been developing a managed account portfolio service, called MAPS, that we plan to launch in 2019. Read on for an exclusive sneak peek at this exciting new product.
MAPS, short for Managed Account Portfolio Service, is expected to be one of the lowest cost managed account services in the market. The annual fee for participants to use MAPS is approximately 30 basis points, or 0.075% each quarter.
MAPS will be fully integrated with Newport Group's retirement plan recordkeeping system and our Fiduciary Consulting team's asset allocation framework for a holistic advice solution for your retirement plan participants.
Easy to Use
The service will walk participants through an interactive experience which will help MAPS deliver tailored, individual advice, including a personalized plan for saving and investing, as well as forecasts for retirement income and wealth. It will then create and manage model portfolios using the designated investment alternatives offered within the retirement plan. Once established, participants can enjoy the peace of mind knowing that their plan will be professionally managed throughout their career and into retirement.
