Two Alliant Advisers Make Repeat Appearance on Financial Times FT 401 List

Jay Laschinger and Aaron Pottichen join the nation’s top financial advisers specializing in defined contribution (DC) plans on prestigious list

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alliant Retirement Consulting, a division of Alliant Insurance Services, has announced that two of its advisers have been named Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Plan Advisers. The 2019 honorees are Senior Vice Presidents Jay Laschinger and Aaron Pottichen, both of whom are making repeat appearances on the list. The FT 401 recognizes the top financial advisers specializing in defined contribution (DC) retirement plans.

“Alliant’s continued presence on this elite list illuminates the excellence in service and market knowledge provided by our team of advisers,” said Kevin Overbey, Senior Executive Vice President and Senior Managing Director, Alliant Employee Benefits.

Financial advisers from across the U.S. applied for consideration, with applicants required to advise on at least $75 million in DC plan assets and have at least 20 percent of client assets in DC plans to be eligible. The applicants were then graded on six criteria: DC assets under management (AUM), growth rate in DC plan business, specialization in the DC business, experience advising on DC plans, industry certifications, and compliance record. Alliant advisers have now been featured on this prestigious list for several consecutive years.

The FT 401 list is produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on asset management.
