A Retirement System That Facilitates Success




A Retirement System That Facilitates Success

Unified Trust’s discretionary managed account service, the UnifiedPlan, works like a personal financial planner for each individual. The low cost, automated service delivers and implements professional investment advice in a convenient and increasingly accepted manner. A growing body of data also shows that the approach increases the probabilities of success while decreasing risk. By defining the individual’s goal and measuring the quarterly progress toward that goal, the asset allocation range can be adjusted appropriately. The UnifiedPlan streamlines for its participants the typically laborious task of planning, knowing what to do and then actually doing it.
