Senior Relationship Manager
I provide professional support to retirement plan sponsors, participants and recordkeepers. In collaboration with our team of experts, I review plan analytics, prepare reports, and develop marketing and compliance presentations.
I was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago. Now I have settled in Western Springs with my husband and our two young children, Trip and Charlotte. Our family spends a lot of time outside (summer or winter!) on our favorite activities: biking, fishing, ice skating, and snowmobiling.
I graduated from DePauw University and have spent the last 11 years in the financial industry as a client service associate. I find fulfillment from helping my clients make good financial decisions to set up themselves and their families for future success.
Areas of expertise
Creating fee comparisons for plan sponsors
Tracking and managing plan sponsor and participant requests
Building fiduciary plan reviews
Preparing comprehensive meeting minutes for audit purposes
Can I please get a copy of the meeting minutes for our auditors?
Of course. Following every plan review Embree writes and distributes copies of the meeting minutes to the investment committee. Meeting minutes play an important role in a 401(k) plan. They ensure that the plan is being monitored and run appropriately, and all audited plans should have them.
What is an unbundled 401(k) plan?
401(k) plans can be bundled or unbundled. An unbundled 401(k) plan consists of a Recordkeeper/Custodian, a Third Party Administrator (TPA), and an Investment Advisor. Helping Plan Sponsors determine if their plan should be bundled or unbundled is a value-added service Embree offers.
