It all starts with local sales support delivered from 50 offices nationwide by more than 100 credentialed salespeople who are available to assist you at any point in the sales process. We know most investment professionals aren’t 401(k) experts too. You can count on PCA to make the difference.

We’re aimed to the $1mm – $5mm sweet spot in the marketplace and you will typically find that—apples-to-apples—401(k) Choice will often be 50 to 150 bps less expensive than most of the major bundled 401(k) providers.

PCA performs as the 3(38) fiduciary offering increased liability protection to you and your client. PCA 401(k) Choice always pays level compensation, which helps solve a current IRS and DOL concern of unequal compensation from varying funds. We provide total fee transparency.
