Last Updated: August 10, 2019

May 15th, 2019 – Mr. Cody Mendenhall, CFP®, Executive Director with Pension Consultants, Inc. (PCI), was featured on 401(k) TV, an affiliate with The Plan Sponsor University (TPSU) and The Retirement Advisor University (TRAU), discussing PCI’s “bold decision” to adopt a performance-based asset management fee structure.


Mr. Fred Barstein, Founder and Executive Director of 401(K) TV, sat down with Mr. Mendenhall at recent TPSU educational event to discuss PCI’s decision to start offering a performance-based asset management fee schedule. Mr. Mendenhall led us through the evolution of PCI’s fee structure over the last 25 years, and the decision to lead the plan adviser industry to a performance-based fee structure.


To put it simply, PCI wants to utilize a performance-driven plan management structure that will make a difference in the financial security of American workers. This means that a significant portion of the fees that PCI receives will be based on how we perform for our clients!


PCI is committed to providing our clients with a plan that performs well with transparent accountability. Let Mr. Mendenhall tell you more about how we do it in his featured video HERE.
