Mid Atlantic is pleased to announce its new business partnership with Financial Consulting Group. Established in 1996 and headquartered in Germantown, Tennessee, FCG serves professional practices, private businesses, individuals, and the banking community. Led by its co-founders and partners Dennis Plyler and Lloyd Crawford, FCG offers retirement planning and consulting, deferred compensation and executive benefits programs, investment fiduciary consulting services, community bank services, and individual financial planning.
“Our strength is the fact that our firm and personnel [all have] a lot of experience in the retirement plan area, from . . . a legal, accounting, and investment perspective,” says Plyler. “So we bring pretty much a turn-key approach to retirement plans.”
In addition to being staffed with seasoned financial professionals, Plyler credits FCG’s lower fee structure in helping attract and retain clients. “They know we’ll bring value at a good cost,” he says.
Due to the acquisition of its previous broker-dealer, FCG decided to seek out a new broker-dealer better able to understand and support its practice. It was quickly determined that Mid Atlantic’s expertise in the retirement planning field offered the most practical solutions and is what primarily led FCG to come aboard. FCG will function mainly as 401(k), ESOP, and KSOP consultants and conduct 3(21) consulting business through MAFM.
