Stadion Announces Strategic Partnership With ABG


WATKINSVILLE, GA, October 30, 2017 -- Stadion Money Management, known for its participant level, customized retirement solutions and non-traditional investment strategies, today announced a strategic partnership with Alliance Benefit Group (ABG). ABG member firms will have access to Stadion's managed account retirement strategy, StoryLine, built with SPDR® ETFs. StoryLine is an innovative retirement planning solution built specifically for 401k participants in advisor-sold plans.

Alliance Benefit Group LLC (ABG) is a national organization of retirement plan, health and welfare consulting and benefit administration firms. Founded in 1991, ABG's unique structure allows its Members to maintain their independence and autonomy, yet provide all Members access to broader service offerings, sharing of best practices, and collaborative technical support. This collaboration has allowed its Members to grow more rapidly than industry counterparts, to where today ABG services 20,000 retirement plans and in excess of $70 Billion in assets. ABG's emphasis on high service standards and continuing education designations help its Members to be regularly recognized with industry awards and accolades.

"Our rationale in making StoryLine available to ABG's network is to enable the advisors and recordkeepers who comprise this group to offer plan sponsors a more personalized managed account solution than target date funds," said Jud Doherty, President and CEO of Stadion. "Since its launch in early 2016, we've seen overwhelming enthusiasm for StoryLine's ability to provide a scalable, participant-focused, technology-based solution that helps participants forge their own retirement paths."

StoryLine's innovative approach recognizes every plan sponsor and employee as unique. The StoryLine process first seeks insight into the overall plan make-up with the intent of tailoring default options for each plan sponsor. Then, with Stadion's new participant-centric web interface, employees can further define their individual investment paths based on personal risk profiles. StoryLine allows -- at the employee's discretion -- the inclusion of outside and spousal assets to facilitate more comprehensive retirement planning. The end goal is to have each participant on a personalized path that goes well beyond typical age-based investment strategies.

Said Don Mackanos, President of Alliance Benefit Group LLC, "One of ABG's core values is flexibility, which is reflected in the way we work with advisors. This focus aligns seamlessly with StoryLine's ability to customize retirement solutions based on the specifics of each participant's individual circumstances, and is something we really value."
