"These strategies are designed to provide plan sponsors and participants with a range of investment choices and truly meaningful diversification," said Harry Clark, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Clark Capital. "With the addition of these strategies, we can offer 401(k) plans portfolios that provide custom-tailored solutions for virtually every participant out there, regardless of individual risk tolerance or age."
Clark Capital is recognized in the 401(k) community for their ability to help advisors pursue retirement business with solutions that aim to manage risk at both the participant and plan sponsor level. Participant risk is managed with their innovative Navigator asset allocation solutions while plan sponsor risk is mitigated by QDIA capabilities and 3(38) Co-Fiduciary services which are offered at no additional cost when the Clark Capital strategies are included in the line-up.
"We're extremely excited," said R. Michael McAleer, Clark Capital's Vice-President and Director of 401(k) Distribution. "We feel the Navigator solutions are unique among everything being marketed in the DC space and these new portfolios really round out our offering."
