DELRAN, NJ —MARCH 18, 2011—Benefit Consultants Group (BCG), a leading retirement plan provider, is pleased to announce the addition of Stadion Money Management as a new partner in the BCG investment management lineup.
The twin hallmarks of BCG’s platform excellence have always been independence and flexibility. Advisors have come to expect investment alternatives beyond the norm. In line with that expectation, BCG offers not only a full array of mutual funds, ETF’s and insurance products, but has been a leader in offering managed account options.
Stadion Money Management now becomes the newest investment option at BCG. With Stadion, BCG now offers advisors and plan sponsors the opportunity to combine single-choice target date-like solutions with the same active money management model Stadion uses in managing high net worth investor accounts. “The Stadion philosophy is designed to help plan participants achieve long term results without undue risk exposure,” says Stadion President Jud Doherty. “We are obviously delighted they will now be available to BCG advisors and plan sponsors.”
Stadion’s unique approach to active management differs dramatically from most others, especially typical buy-and-hold methodologies. Stadion’s process employs science and discipline to inform it’s ‘win by not losing’ approach. This risk-averse style aims to deliver satisfying results with less volatility than traditional buy-and-hold strategies, with Stadion gladly accepting the possibility of missing some upswings in order to avoid the downside risk normally associated with equity investments.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Stadion as a new money management partner,” says Beau Adams, Executive Vice President of Business Development for BCG. “This will allow BCG to extend the Stadion solution to advisors and plan sponsors who demand the flexibility of an open architecture platform.”
