We offer a competitive, comprehensive suite of retirement plan services by integrating our Flat Fee-Only approach – both in total cost structure and in performance of the underlying investment choices. FPL Capital Management can service your plan as either a 3(21) or 3(38) fiduciary.
Plan services are very appealing and cost-effective for small to medium size professional organizations which have high averages for participant account balances.
Built on a Nobel Prize-winning framework, we provide a Risk Evaluation for all participants using our Risk Alignment Tool that quantifies the semantics of the financial advice industry, replacing confusing and subjective terms like “moderately conservative” and “moderately aggressive” with the Risk Number, a number between 1 and 99 that pinpoints a participant’s exact comfort zone for downside risk and potential upside gain. We determine a recommended risk exposure to match the participant’s Risk Number and chart a clearly defined path to their goals which is then integrated into the Participant’s Investment Policy Statement.
Risk Number Capture- The first step is to have a participant answer a 5-minute questionnaire that covers topics such as portfolio size, top financial goals, and what they’re willing to risk for potential gains. Then we’ll pinpoint their exact Risk Number to guide our decision making process.
Portfolio Alignment- After pinpointing their Risk Number, we’ll assign a portfolio that aligns with their personal preferences and priorities, allowing them to feel comfortable with their expected outcomes. The resulting proposed portfolio will include projections for the potential gains and losses we should expect over time.
INVESTMENT POLICY STATEMENT
We construct an Investment Policy Statement for each participant to provide the following:
WEALTH MANAGEMENT PORTAL
We help participants organize their financial life by providing a secure, digital Wealth Management Portal. They will enjoy access to their personal financial website from any device.
Our Wealth Management Portal provides access to eMoney Advisor’s award-winning financial planning software, account aggregation and resources to prepare your secure financial future. eMoney Advisor is owned by Fidelity Investments.
A consolidated view of your assets and liabilities, updated daily.
Set goals and keep track of your progress as you work to reach your financial goals.
Understand the impact of your financial decisions and make your goals a reality.
Track spending habits, monitor cash flow and stay on the right financial path.
Interactive charts and detailed summaries increase knowledge of your financial accounts.
An extensive library of videos, articles and other resources to increase your financial knowledge.
Plans have access to our Model Portfolios which are designed to emphasize market segments of higher expected returns, minimize turnover and reduce overall expenses.
- Highly diversified and efficient, these comprehensive solutions are designed to serve a wide range of participant needs and risk tolerances – from conservative to ultra-aggressive
Model Portfolios can be used as core strategies or as building blocks to create the ideal portfolio for the particpant. Detailed information for each Model Portfolio can be found on our Model Folio page, including holdings, model allocation, benchmark allocation and historical performance published monthly.
In addition to our Model Portfolios, we also offer a carefully selected list of investments for Plan Participants to customize their portfolio.
ADDITIONAL AVAILABLE INVESTMENTS
Most retirement plans strictly invest in various forms of publicly traded capital market investments such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETF’s. We believe that individual investors should not be denied access to other forms of investments that are accessible to institutional investors. We allow and oversee investments in Private Funds.
- Private Equity Funds
- Private Credit/Debt Funds
- Private Equity Real Estate Funds
Typically, minimum investment requirements range from $2 million to $10 million. However, FPL Capital Management has arrangement for its clients to access these funds at significantly lower minimums. In some cases, as low as $50,000.
We collaborate with various services providers (Third-Party Administrators, Recordkeepers and Custodians) to ensure the plan is running smoothly. You can keep your current service providers or we can recommend one for you.
More flexibility and options with investment strategies

Access to investment vehicles not available or allowed in 401(K)s
