OneDigital Retirement Adviser Discusses the New World of Plan Fees

With the new consumer attitude around fees, advisers are forced to change their fee structures to stay competitive.

With employees now willing to use the financial wellness program, it puts more impetus on the plan sponsor to have a well-structured financial wellness program to assist their employees. PlanSponsor collected a group of six subject matter experts on how best to build a customized financial wellness solution.

Clients expect more from their advisers than ever before for their fees. This rebalancing is causing advisers to reassess their fee structure. This shift is creating an excellent opportunity for growth.
