Independent, transparent, and focused on your organization

Your organization’s retirement plan is complex, full of ever-changing details, regulations, and oversight. We’ve built our reputation on understanding these complexities and helping our clients build strong retirement plans for the past two decades.

We’ll work to better manage organizational costs, litigation risk and fiduciary liability, all the while keeping administration straight-forward and simple.

No-nonsense consulting

You want a consultant that makes your job easier. Our straight-forward consulting approach tells you what you need to know, why you need to know it, and what you need to do about it. Our goal is to help you implement a more effective, efficient decision making process, and to gain a deeper understanding of your investment landscape as a fiduciary. Together, we can help ensure your company is maximizing its retirement plan and your employees are getting the most out of their benefits.

Integrity is our policy

Our policy is to always fully disclose costs to you. We do not receive commissions from any of the mutual funds that we recommend and, if any revenue sharing is paid, we recommend that it be returned automatically to participants invested in those funds. Doing the right thing is why Conrad Siegel has been around for nearly 60 years, and we have grown to be a premier investment advisory consulting firm over the past two decades.

Serving diverse clients

Our clients are diverse and range in size from $1 million to over $1 billion. They are located in California, Florida, New York and in-between. We’ve partnered with a variety of industries including healthcare, education, manufacturing, professional services, and government entities.
