Firm Profile

Blue Prairie Group (BPG) is an independent, employee-owned, Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm with three core practice areas: Institutional Retirement (ERISA), Wealth Management, and Foundations and Endowments. We provide comprehensive ERISA consulting services to a diverse range of organizations including not-for-profit, corporate, associations, and religious institutions. We work with all types of institutional retirement plans including defined benefit, defined contribution (401(k), 403(b), 457, etc.) and non-qualified plans. Blue Prairie Group was founded in Chicago in 2002, and now has additional offices in Atlanta, Tampa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, and San Francisco. Our satellite offices allow us to provide localized support to geographically dispersed clients, while providing centralized infrastructure and technical support out of our Chicago office. Blue Prairie Group started with one ERISA client and we have built our business on referrals from clients and from relationships based on our core principles of independence, objectivity and transparency. We are one of the fastest growing investment consulting firms in the country and now have clients across the country representing over $7 billion in assets under advisement.
