Newtown, PA – Johnson Kendall & Johnson (JKJ) has once again been named to the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) list of the nation’s top defined contribution (DC) Advisor Teams. JKJ, credited as the inventor of the 401(k), has made this esteemed list every year since NAPA began publishing it several years ago.

“As a repeated refrain each time we have been honored to have earned a spot onto this list, we are once again excited, proud, and humbled to have been named to NAPA’s Top DC Advisor Teams,” said Ben Hall, JKJ Retirement Services Vice President. “Our team at JKJ has remained doggedly committed to our clients throughout the COVID pandemic. As I have said in the past, we could not have accomplished our past, current, and future successes without the support & partnership of the others who we also consider a part of our team: namely our clients & their professional advisors & practitioners.”

“Since their inception, NAPA’s various industry lists have been a valuable Who’s Who of who matters in the world of retirement plans and retirement plan advisors,” noted Nevin Adams, Chief Content Officer of the American Retirement Association, and Editor-in-Chief of NAPA-Net, the nation’s leading online resource for retirement plan advisors. “This latest chapter – the NAPA Top DC Advisor Teams, ranked by self-reported DC assets under advisement – presents a compelling case for the positive impact on the nation’s private retirement system”.

Despite the market turmoil in 2022, the record number (362) of teams on this year’s list continue to guide nearly $2 trillion in defined contribution plan assets belonging to more than 56,000 plans covering more than 23 million participants. Located in 41 states and the District of Columbia, each team listed operates out of a single physical location, and has more than $100 million in Assets Under Advisement, based on self-reported AUA as of Dec. 31, 2022. “As the nation’s leading voice for retirement plan advisors, we are once again pleased to highlight the contributions and commitment of these teams,” noted Adams.

The list of NAPA’s Top DC Advisor Teams, which will be published in the Summer issue of NAPA Net, the Magazine, is available online here.
