"Fiduciary Plan Advisors' focus on delivering differentiated solutions to corporate plan sponsors is meeting a critical need in the market," said Michael Parker, HighTower's National Director of Enterprise Development. "With the Network's support, they will be able to maintain their own unique brand and culture while providing clients with more comprehensive and sophisticated product and service offerings."
The Fiduciary Plan Advisors team is led by Jania Stout, Chief Executive Officer, formerly of PSA Financial Advisors, Inc. Ms. Stout was a Senior Vice President and retirement plan consultant serving midsize companies' corporate retirement planning needs in the firm's Fiduciary Consulting Group, which she founded upon joining PSA. In her prior role, Ms. Stout managed a team of advisors who served in a co-fiduciary role with plan sponsors responsible for 401(k) plans with billions of dollars of investments.
"In six years, the practice has grown from serving the Baltimore and D.C. areas to advising clients all over the country on the challenges and complexities associated with providing corporate retirement plans," said Ms. Stout. "Membership in the HighTower Network gives us the infrastructure to support a national footprint and enables us to remain fully focused on addressing our clients' unique needs as we continue to build our business."
