Fisher Investments 401(k) Solutions hired an independent leading market research firm, Chatham Partners, to conduct the client satisfaction survey in September and October 2019. Respondents were asked to rate Fisher Investments 401(k) Solutions on the attributes shown in the chart above, using a scale of 1 (very dissatisfied, strongly disagree) to 7 (very satisfied, strongly agree). Ratings of 6 or 7 are considered “Best-In-Class.” Chatham Partners invited 371 contacts of 281 current clients of Fisher Investments 401(k) Solutions to participate. A total of 110 contacts (30%) responded, representing 37% of all clients invited. All responses are included in the results.

Given no other retirement advisers participated in the survey, Chatham Partners created a benchmark for comparison to the Fisher Investments 401(k) Solutions results. The benchmark was based on survey responses from plan sponsors, people responsible for managing their company’s 401(k) plan. To be included in the benchmark, respondents had to utilize a retirement plan adviser, have final decision making authority or influence on decisions made for the plan, and have less than $10MM in assets in their company 401(k).

The resulting ratings are not representative of any one client's experience because the rating reflects an average of all, or a sample of all, client experiences and are not indicative of future performance.
