David Ranney Recently Featured on Charleston’s FOX 24
CHARLESTON, S.C. May 5, 2023—David Ranney was featured on Charleston’s FOX 24, where he was interviewed about the hidden fees that small business owners and 401(k) plan sponsors should be aware of.
Ranney discussed how small and mid-sized business owners typically have less of a voice with the provider of their 401(k) service offering, and that can lead to these business owners paying higher fees. It is important for business owners to take a look at their 401(k) service offering every 2-3 years. Total fees should be around 1% all-in. If business owners are over-paying on their 401(k) fees, the compounding factor of higher fees can lead to a loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars over time for their retirement nest egg.
As Vice President of Sales at Rebalance, Ranney partners with small businesses throughout the Carolinas. He educates 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.
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. Ranney also holds a Series 65 securities license. He currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina.
