SARASOTA COUNTY, FL–Pinkerton, Harkins and Mehserle Private Wealth, a 50-year-old wealth management firm, has announced the launch of FourThought Institutions, a division dedicated to meeting the investment and retirement plan needs of businesses and nonprofit organizations.
Scott Pinkerton, managing partner of Pinkerton Private Wealth stated, “We recognized a growing need for services that help businesses and nonprofits manage their retirement plans and institutional investments effectively. With tight personnel budgets, complexity in the markets and evolving Department of Labor and ERISA regulations, it has become increasingly difficult to be a good fiduciary and responsible steward of one’s assets. Our goal for our institutional clients is to help fill that void.”
FourThought Institutions is led by Patrick Baumann, CFA®, the former corporate treasurer for Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS). While at the $20B global technology company and defense contractor, Baumann designed and oversaw a robust defined contribution plan and other retirement programs including executive compensation plans. He was also responsible for capital markets, foreign exchange, funding and liquidity.
For businesses who wish to design or better manage their retirement plans, FourThought offers consulting services including the development of investment policy statements, ERISA compliance reviews, plan designs and reviews, and fund manager selection. Partnering with record keepers and third-party administrators, it also facilitates employee enrollment and focuses heavily on financial education for participants. For businesses and nonprofits it also offers investment management, fiduciary oversight and an outsource chief investment officer service.
To learn more, contact Patrick Baumann at 941-408-8557.
