Self-Directed 401(k) Investing

Participant-Directed Investment Accounts Linked to No Fees 401(k)

(No Fees 401(k) Uses Charles Schwab as Our Default Brokerage and Asset Custodian)

No Fees 401(k) provides secure links to America's most popular self-directed brokerage accounts. Top brokerages include Charles Schwab, Vanguard, Fidelity, eTrade, TD Ameritrade, and more. Charles Schwab is our default choice, and we have been using Schwab as the preferred 401(k) asset custodian and self-directed brokerage for over 30 years.

Self-directed brokerage accounts are ideal for the owners and employees of small businesses because each participant selects and monitors their investments. Employers' fiduciary liabilities are significantly reduced because the plan participants make all their own investment decisions.

Unlike old-style 401(k) plans, self-directed brokerage 401(k) plans relieve the employer of the responsibility and liabilities associated with "pre-selecting" a menu of "employer-approved" investments for inclusion in the company's plan. With our No Fees 401(k) self-directed brokerage accounts, each plan participant makes independent investment decisions about how their 401(k) retirement savings are invested.
