Securian Financial and SageView Advisory Group Introduce Highly Personalized Managed Account Solution for Workplace Retirement Plans

Securian Financial is expanding its retirement plan distribution relationship with SageView Advisory Group with the introduction of SageView Personalized Portfolios-an advisor managed account solution that maximizes personalization to manage risk and help employees of all ages reach retirement income goals.

SageView Personalized Portfolios securely leverage employee data to create an investment allocation unique to each employee. Using data already provided streamlines processes and keeps costs reasonable. Employees who want to provide additional data can do so to further personalize their allocation.

SageView works with each plan sponsor to develop an investment menu that addresses the unique needs of the company's employee base while adhering to fiduciary best practices. From there, participants who enroll in SageView Personalized Portfolios receive customized asset allocations that align with their financial situations and retirement goals. SageView partners with Stadion Money Management to ensure that participant portfolios are monitored continuously and remain suitable as finances and life circumstances change over time. All aspects of portfolio management are integrated with Securian Financial's recordkeeping system, resulting in a seamless experience for SageView, employers and employees.

"We are excited about helping American workers access personalized investment assistance via Securian Financial and Stadion. Our client-first business philosophies complement our collective end-goal of providing meaningful solutions to support employees' retirement income goals," said Christopher Donnelly, QPFC, chief advisory services officer, SageView Advisory Group.

"We're delighted to work with an industry-leading firm like SageView," said Steve Chappell, Securian Financial vice president for retirement solutions distribution. "Our innovative approach to managed accounts, complemented by high-touch client service provided by long-tenured retirement specialists, are powerful tactics that support SageView's advisors as they help employees reach their retirement income goals and assist employers wit providing a highly competitive benefit in today's challenging hiring environment."
