David Ranney Recently Featured on Charleston’s FOX 24
CHARLESTON, S.C. Oct. 24, 2022—David Ranney, a resident of Charleston since 2010, has recently joined Rebalance, a leading retirement planning and wealth management firm, as Vice President of Sales for its premier small business 401(k) offering, BetterK. Ranney will be expanding 401(k) offerings throughout Charleston, greater South Carolina, and North Carolina, as Rebalance accelerates its efforts to help transform the small business retirement savings ecosystem throughout the Southeast.
BetterK is Rebalance’s proprietary, innovative 401(k) offering specializing in small businesses with assets ranging from $1 million to $10 million. The BetterK platform stands apart from other 401(k) solutions by reducing fees by up to 50% or more, by offering “Ivy League” endowment-style investment management, and by providing top-notch day-to-day service.
On Monday, October 17, Ranney was featured on Charleston’s FOX 24 “Money Monday” segment, where he was interviewed about the legal risks that small business owners and 401(k) plan sponsors should be aware of.
As Vice President of Sales at Rebalance, Ranney partners with small businesses throughout the Carolinas. He will educate small businesses about how to avoid high 401(k) fees, how to optimize asset allocation, how to increase plan participation, and how to utilize retirement planning. The net result is higher employee satisfaction and greater employee retention.
On November 1, Ranney will be a featured speaker at the North Charleston Chamber of Commerce Lunch and Learn, discussing how to successfully implement 401(k) plans within small businesses, despite various issues and risks that can arise.
“I am looking forward to partnering with small businesses on my home turf, to help business owners find the best solutions to help both them and their employees successfully plan for retirement,” Ranney said. “Rebalance offers small businesses access to large endowment-caliber investment expertise combined with unparalleled customer service for plan sponsors and their employees, and I’m excited to share this access with my Carolina neighbors.”
Ranney graduated from the College of the Holy Cross with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and he earned his Master of Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Marketing from the Carroll School of Management at Boston College. He currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina.
