Klein's K4 Plan Goals System Certified Under Pension Protection Act

Research Triangle Park, NC - 16 April 2012

Investment process innovator Klein Decisions, Inc. received certification on its K4 Plan Goals investment advice computer model by Roland|Criss, a fiduciary practices audit firm. Klein Decisions offers its K4 Plan Goals computer model to advisors and other service providers nationwide that provide investment advice to retirement plan participants. The model allows investment advisors to add value to their retirement plan client relationships by simplifying a typically complex participant investment decision-making process.

The certification of these types of computer systems is required by the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which, subsequent to its adoption, became an integral part of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"). With an annual certification of this computer model, Klein Decisions' K4 Plan Goals technology is in compliance with ERISA, and will continue to be utilized by thousands of retirement plan participants and advisors across the country.

Robert Padgette, Klein Decision's CEO and President, said, "The robust audit program that Roland|Criss administered actually went beyond the Department of Labor's requirements. We are delighted that our clients can have the assurance of the capability of our K4 Plan Goals computer model through this certification, and we look forward to helping them and plan participants more easily navigate their future investment-related decisions with this technology."
