NAPA Black Book Now Open for Submissions

In 2015, NAPA launched its first-ever “Black Book,” a directory of the nation’s leading providers in three key service categories for retirement plan advisors: recordkeepers, DCIOs and BD/RIAs. Last year we added TPAs — and this year, we’re expanding it even further.

Since its launch, the NAPA Black Book has enjoyed a tremendous response, both from the firms listed and from the 12,000+ NAPA member advisors who received a copy and who continue to refer to it throughout the year.

The Black Book is a special issue of NAPA Net the Magazine, and it has quickly become the resource guide for serious retirement plan advisors. NAPA Firm Partners are eligible for a regular listing at no cost!

As in previous years, there are sections for BDs/RIAs, DCIOs, recordkeepers and TPAs. This year we are extending the Black Book listings to include a new category of advisor services: Technology & Tools!

While it may seem a long ways off, we are today opening the database for submissions!  The deadline for data requests — in the applicable categories below — is 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, Oct. 6.
