Ethical Investment Advisor Charlotte | David Hoshour

Dave Hoshour Biography:

Dave believes that plans benefit greatly by the trustees/sponsors working with a proactive advisor that is current on retirement plan issues and regulation and who believes strongly in the value of sound, time-efficient processes, a customized investment policy statement with monitoring and careful documentation and regular education for both sponsors and participants.


As a fiduciary, Dave believes strongly in sponsor and participant education. Most business owners and senior executives have not had the pleasure of working with an ethical investment advisor that really understands qualified retirement plans and keeps their plan(s) constantly improving, with insightful regular reviews and benchmarking for reasonable plan costs and performance.

Retirement Readiness:

Most employees are not on track for retirement readiness, which they may realize but are not addressing with the benefit of understandable education that increases participation rates, contribution levels and participant satisfaction.

Customized, Unbundled Approach:

Dave also believes in the value of a completely transparent unbundled approach free of hidden fees and surrender schedules. This open architecture platform brings together the best funds from many fund families and best-of-breed record-keepers, custodians and third-party administrators. Low-cost index funds and lifestyle funds or fixed-allocation models are usually included as Dave customizes his approach to the company’s specific needs and demographics.
