Cleveland, OH – Oswald Financial, Inc. is pleased to announce that they have been named as one of the 2015 Financial Times (FT) Top 401 Retirement Adviser.

The list recognizes the top financial advisers who specialize in serving defined contribution (DC) retirement plans. The inaugural list was developed in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on asset management, and Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. a leading provider of data solutions and market intelligence.

To qualify for the list, advisers had to have 20% or more of their total client assets in DC plans. Qualified advisers were then graded based on seven broad factors: DC assets under management, growth in DC plans and assets, degree of specialization in the DC business, experience, participation rate in DC plans advised, industry certifications, and compliance record.
