We can take away the annual “juggle” of your health insurance costs. Every year you either pay more, change carriers and plans, limit coverage, shift costs to employees, or a combination thereof. None of these are long-term solutions. Instead of giving your employees a “one-size-fits-all” or limited menu benefits program, why not just give them money to buy the benefits that they actually need and fit their budget?
Our group insurance consulting team will help you set a “benefits budget”, thereby making your benefit costs predictable. intellicents will then use people and technology to work with your employees to customize a benefits program that fits their needs and budget. Think about it – you effectively get out of the “benefits business” -- and our surveys show that 96% of employees prefer to choose their own benefits rather than have their employer choose for them. Do your employees have the freedom of choice?

Are you really focusing on the right things in your 401(k)? You spend all this time monitoring the plan’s funds and fees, and worrying about your fiduciary responsibility; but are your employees actually on track to have enough money to retire? And what does it cost you as their employer if they have to delay retirement?
Our retirement plan consulting team will take on the fiduciary responsibility of selecting and monitoring your plan’s investment lineup, and negotiating with your recordkeeper for great service at competitive fees. In addition, however, they will establish goals and benchmark what percent of your employees are actually on track to a successful retirement outcome. Isn’t that why you have a plan in the first place?

We’re good, but not that good. It’s not what year you’re invested in a diversified portfolio of stocks; or even what month, or what week -- it’s literally what days you’re invested. Our job is to help you define your financial goals, develop an investment plan to get there, and then keep you on that plan when the financial markets get tough.
And we never want you to question the motives behind our investment recommendations to you. That is why we at intellicents encourage you to adopt our fundamental fiduciary approach centered on removing all potential conflicts of interest from our relationship with you. By so doing, you’ll never wonder if our recommendations will be in your best interest because we get paid the same no matter where your money is invested.
Coupled with this transparent personal service delivery, our personal financial management team has put together contemporary technology solutions that not only give you daily updated access to your entire financial life, but also low cost investment solutions designed to improve your odds at meeting your stated objectives and benchmarks...each with the goal that you always know (1) the risks that you are taking; (2) the investment costs you are incurring; and (3) how much you are paying us to quarterback this process for you.
