PAi Retirement Services

Firm Profile

Since 1983, PAi has helped financial advisors, both generalists and specialists, grow their retirement plan revenue and client base. We offer fully bundled retirement services including record keeping and administration. As a retirement service provider, we base our success on you and your customer rather than on a proprietary investment product.

We serve advisors with the following two solutions:

Copilot – CoPilot is a fully bundled retirement service with the following advantages:
– A sales cycle that is faster than open architecture 401(k) plans.
– Online participant enrollment.
– Installs in minutes.
– Fiduciary services including model allocations from national 3(38) providers.

Open Architecture – PAi’s Open Architecture solution is a low cost service; any publicly traded investment that is available through Broadridge/Matrix is available for your customer’s plan. Our Open Architecture solution works with commission and fee based advisors and can provide a level compensation solution for commission based plans.

PAi’s proprietary recordkeeping systems are integrated with a number of payroll and HRIS providers for ease of operation.

We are proud of our award winning customer service. With $4.4 billion in assets under administration, we provide participant outcome-based solutions. If you like the freedom and security of a retirement service rather than a retirement product – we are the solution for you.
