Serving the University Community

Few people have the time, knowledge, or inclination to follow the investment markets and manage their wealth as closely as they should. That's why many people choose to have expert independent investment advisory help planning and managing their wealth.

The University Retirement System

Your University Retirement Plan offers investment products from TIAA-CREF, Fidelity, and perhaps other investment companies. The bottom line is that you often have more than 100 different investment options. History shows that if you are effective in selecting the best of the available alternatives and rebalancing your portfolio frequently, you can potentially increase your retirement accumulation significantly*

Making wise retirement plan choices concerning the management of the retirement plan you have accumulated and its ultimate distribution can save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary taxes and preserve your wealth for the benefit of your family and others. Ben Griffith and Debbie Burkhalter can help you understand your options and develop a strategy to maximize your wealth.
