QPA is an independent third party retirement plan administration, non-producing TPA company. We have been administering retirement plans since 1995 from our offices in Augusta, GA and Columbia, SC. Although we are proud of our roots in the Southeast, we are not limited to our geographic location and we work equally hard for our Advisor relationship across the country. We are committed to our partnerships with investment advisors and we are in the truest sense; your partner, “never your competitor”.
QPA can provide support to your clients under a private label or co-branded basis, and we are confident that you will appreciate our open architecture approach to retirement plan design. This approach, coupled with our expertise and professionalism, will give you the freedom as a trusted advisor to assist your clients in their selection of the best mutual funds across all asset classes, and with no proprietary requirements.
QPA uses TPA service credits to offset our administration costs. In addition to fee proposals, we will also work with you to provide a comprehensive compliance review, plan design illustrations for your client; we also provide you assistance in closing an important sale, and are available to accompany you to client meetings to provide support, if you would like for us to.
