Retirement plan market beckons, but RIAs hesitate

TD Ameritrade survey finds advisors need more information and guidance

Relatively few RIAs service 401(k)s and other employer-sponsored retirement plans even though the market beckons as a huge growth opportunity, according to a new study.

A recent TD Ameritrade Institutional Advisor Survey found that advisors want a deeper understanding of the rules and more guidance in pulling together components they need to service the U.S. retirement plan market.

The survey underscored that RIAs have business-owning clients and that they have the expertise to service them, TD Ameritrade said.

Still, half of the advisors said they would like to develop a firmer understanding in the areas of retirement plan compliance and regulation. More than half wanted more education about the retirement market.
