An Institutional Investment Platform
All of your plan’s investments will be made through an institutional investment management platform. This will eliminate additional fees that may be incurred when investing through retail platforms, and allow plan participants to have more of their savings go into investments rather than being used to pay fees and expenses.

For many plan sponsors, selecting and monitoring investments is an unwelcome burden. IRON Financial uses its expertise in manager selection and proprietary portfolio creation to relieve you of these responsibilities.
