The Colton Groome Difference

A Single, Cohesive Point of Contact

Many investment advisors treat Business Retirement Plans as an ancillary business line. The retirement plan industry is highly regulated and exacting. That’s why Colton Groome Financial created a multifaceted team, unique in western North Carolina.

Members of our Retirement Plan Team have an exceptional skill set and specialize in a variety of retirement benefits including:

  • 401(k)
  • 403(b)
  • Non-qualified retirement plans

Our team’s qualifications provide us with the capability to:

  • Create more engagement with your employees,
  • Educate your staff
  • Direct you toward a better-suited and more cost-efficient employee benefit
  • Lead your plan to its greatest potential

Our Retirement Plan department is intentionally credentialed as a whole, to work as a whole, so we can act as the single point of contact for your HR, finance, and administrative teams.

“Previous vendors were capable and confident, but they didn’t educate us. I don’t want my vendor holding all the knowledge and leaving me in the dark. Colton Groome explained so we felt confident in our own understanding. We feel entirely supported by their people.”

ADDED VALUE: Employee Outreach & Education

As part of a competitive rewards package, one measure of your retirement plan’s effectiveness as a benefit is the level of plan participation – a marker for employee financial wellness.

To help guide your employees toward their brightest future, CGF spends a great deal of time educating employees. We inform them on not only reaching retirement, but enjoying long-term financial wellness after they do.

We provide annual employee seminars plus the extra offering of a free individual review and assessment meeting every year for each plan participant. We teach the zero-balance budget approach. This method ensures they know where every single one of their dollars is going each month and is one of the easiest ways to empower individuals and families to make their financial goals a reality.
