GRATKE WEALTH | Life is Complicated

“Life is complicated. Retirement doesn’t have to be.”

The traditional ‘do-it-yourself’ 401(k) plan is fundamentally flawed in three ways.


Our retirement philosophy is simple We know that you’re busy and don’t have the time to manage your company’s 401(k) plan. We help you put all the pieces at work.

“Fewer than 2 percent of business owners have a self-employed profit sharing plan, 18 percent participate in a 401(k) plan and more than nine million self-employed individuals lack any retirement plan.”

The quality of your 401(k) plan will impact your team’s ability to retire well. There’s more to plan for than just performance. You’ll need to consider the fees charged by plan providers, the lifestyle and unique needs of your staff and the size of your match when deciding how well your team will meet their retirement goals.

Our core practice areas include 401k retirement plan investment due diligence and fund ranking, RFPs & fee benchmarkings, fiduciary compliance, employee education, intensive training, national branding, sales and marketing resources and business consulting.
