Folio(k)™: A New Revolution in the 401(k) Marketplace

Folio(k) is revolutionary. An effective, transparent, low-cost retirement plan solution, Folio(k) enables advisors and retirement plan specialists to offer a turn-key, professionally advised retirement solution to their business clients.

The weaknesses in typical 401(k) plans are increasingly apparent. Investors may face limited or poor investment offerings and do not possess enough knowledge both to construct well-diversified, risk-appropriate portfolios for themselves, or update or rebalance their investments as needed.

The Folio(k) Solution

With Folio(k), you and your sponsor client easily create or select and manage the core plan investments. We’ve developed Folio(k) using our Target Date Folios—over 20 pre-designed ETF portfolios with three different risk levels that are optimized for retirement investing. Each Target Date Folio is flexible and can be customized as desired. Advisors and sponsors can also create their own Folios to take their place in the plan offerings. We believe our Target Date Folios reflect a far broader level of diversification and are more cost-effective than traditional target date funds. They are reviewed quarterly and updated if conditions warrant. Read more about Target Date Folios.

We have options where you can specifically tailor a plan’s investment lineup by incorporating any of our nearly 150 pre-assembled Ready-to-Go Folios or customized models or allocations built by you or a model manager you might utilize.
