National Retirement Partners Member Firms Realize New Plan Growth 400% Higher Than National Average

National Retirement Partners, Inc. (NRP), the nation's largest network of independent retirement plan focused advisors with more than 6,000 retirement plans and assets in excess of $60 billion, announced today new plan growth from Member Firms increased year to year 400% above the national average.

Year to year NRP Member Firms have grown the number of retirement plans over 16% for pension business and over 25% for wealth management. This contrasts with recent retirement industry news that retirement plan turnover is estimated to be below 3% and provider sales growth year over year is below 6%.

Bob Francis, NRP's chief operating officer attributes the growth largely to the launch of their rollover and wealth management initiatives in late 2007. "We are committed to enhancing the breadth and depth of the tools and research that we offer exclusively to our member organizations and their clients," stated Francis. "From top producing retirement advisers who want and need the critical tools and resources, to plan sponsors who yearn for advisers who truly understand their needs, NRP and our member firms are positioned to be at the forefront of the retirement industry," Francis elaborated.

NRP continually searches for industry leading, pension focused advisors who wish to team up with like-minded, forward thinking individuals and organizations, share their expertise, and benefit from the invaluable tools and resources we offer members.
