As a 401(k) adviser, my mission is to help: • Help workers pursue their idea of financial independence (retirement) • Protect owners, CEO, CFO and HR, from the personal risks they face in managing the plan, • Manage direct and indirect cost costs My “6 Steps to Managing Fiduciary Risk Process” incorporates retirement readiness with your options to manage fiduciary liability that exposes you to personal risk. My approach starts with a different attitude. My compassionate approach looks at your plan through the lens of retirement readiness of various age, income, gender and racial demographics. I use these demographics to help advise you on your investment monitoring and plan feature selection, such as automatic enrollment and employee advice. I help educate you on the various profit sharing, Plan savings design options that can potentially increase contributions to owners and select classes of employees. These options can help address the unique savings needs of the highly compensated. My 6 Steps to Managing Fiduciary Risk includes options for investment monitoring. You may want to consider including socially responsible investments (SRI) for personal reasons or a way to further engage your employees in your retirement plan. My investment monitoring process for including SRI sometimes referred to as Environmental, Social and Governance investing was highlighted in Forbes.

Guy Waggoner
City: Bowling Green
State: Kentucky
Zip: 42103

SVP/Senior Trust Officer - Franklin Bank & Trust Company

The Employee Benefit Research Institute projects the retirement gap in the United States as $4.38 trillion.  Other studies doubles and triples this deficit.  Our goal is to help the employer and employee to strive to help reduce the gap and not contribute to it.  We believe to attack the gap; we must first strive to reach the individual plan and then the individual.

To reach this goal, we focus on proper education for both the employee and employer.   For the employee, we focus on the proper risk allocation, staying invested, and the cost of delaying savings. We educate the employer on the plan design that will maximize their budgeted expenses, the impact of fees on positive outcomes, and understanding and realizing fiduciary responsibility.  Finally, we want to offer reliable service and meaningful innovation to help increase employee satisfaction.

Guy Waggoner is a Certified Financial Planner® with 14 years of experience in helping employers and employees achieve their retirement objectives.  For the last 10 years, he has worked for two trust companies serving in many fiduciary capacities.
