Ascensus’ Strong Brand Leads To New Product Continuum

Dresher, Pennsylvania–May 22, 2012Ascensus has realigned its retirement plan solutions to better reflect its strong brand. The company has built a reputation as a high-quality service provider with simple, flexible options for financial professionals and their prospects and clients. Now its product names are following suit, with a new approach that showcases the wide range of offerings on Ascensus’ product continuum.

Options for every market segment are now being presented in a clear and more meaningful manner under the Ascensus brand:

  • Full service: a complete package with recordkeeping and compliance delivered by Ascensus
  • Unbundled: Ascensus’ recordkeeping services combined with the support of a local third party administrator
  • Small business: a cost-effective option that is easy to implement for companies with fewer than 15 employees
  • Individual(k)™: an investment alternative that provides maximum savings opportunities for owner-only businesses

We feel this new approach makes it even easier to understand the breadth of options available at Ascensus,” explains Mike Narkoff, Senior Vice President, Retail Sales. “It’s simple and straightforward: We offer high-quality, flexible solutions that can be tailored to the needs of all types of clients—large and small.”
