Award Signifies Excellence in the 401(k) Marketplace

ARLINGTON, VA, (September 30, 2010) – The American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA) today announced the opening of the nomination window for the 401(k) Advisor Leadership Award. The award recognizes leadership, innovation, and influence by a leading financial advisor in the 401(k) marketplace.

Sponsored by Morningstar, Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research, and ASPPA, the leader in retirement education and advocacy— the award reflects the multi-faceted efforts of advisors to serve their clients (plan sponsors and participants), act as a mentor, maintain high ethical standards, and consistently improve their practices and services in the retirement industry.

In its fourth year, the 401(k) Advisor Leadership Award continues to recognize leadership, innovation and contributions to the retirement plan industry regarding the sales, marketing and establishment of 401(k) plans. Award Recipients are known for going “above and beyond” to exemplify a key pursuit of ASPPA—to directly impact the ability for Americans to build a successful retirement, especially through employer based plans.

Nominations will be accepted until November 15, 2010. Any individual or group of individuals (Broker Dealer Registered Reps, Registered Investment Advisors, Plan Administrators (TPAs) and Product and Service Professionals) who are active as financial advisors of 401(k) plans are eligible for nomination. ASPPA membership is not a requirement.

Three finalists will be named in January 2011, and one of these finalists will receive the 401(k) Advisor Leadership Award during a special general session of the tenth annual ASPPA 401(k) SUMMIT in March 2011.
